Nestled on a choice site in the popular Hirafu town, the residence opens up on one side directly to the powder ski slopes of Ace Family Lift, where you can access the entire ski fields of Annupuri.
On the other side lines the lively main street of Hirafuzaka. Having the luxury of both ski-slope and street-side access combines the best of both worlds—nature’s grandeur and urban comforts.
Maximise every second on the powder with a residents-only drying room and spacious entryway that allows an easy and safe approach to the ski slope.
At night, the main runs are lit for a beautifully surreal experience. The bright lights even penetrate the trees to give powder hounds some serious action.

Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan

A world-class ski destination, Niseko receives 14m of snow per season on average. Offering 38 lifts, 4 developed, inter-linked resorts, 47km of groomed slopes, 1000m of vertical, and the longest run stretching 5600m, Niseko is the largest of Hokkaido’s ski areas, and overall the most well-rounded winter resort on the island.
There is a good mix of groomed runs for all levels, from first-timers through expert powder hounds. There is also a terrain park with half-pipes, table tops, round quarters and rails etc… a variety of terrain to suit boarders of different abilities.
That being said, novices going down the slope for the first time may want to avoid the crowds in peak powder season and consider some of the quieter times (spring).
