Kiroro / Kokusai

Kiroro and Kokusai are some of the best kept secrets in Hokkaido.

Kiroro and Kokusai offer a powder sanctuary away from the crowds. They both have some amazing lift accessed areas and are only a short drive away. Great tree skiing and bowls with varying degrees of terrain for all levels.

Our fully qualified guides and professional photographers will not only show you all the secret powder stashes and short cuts around the mountain, they will keep you safe and capture all the thrills and spills for you to show off to your friends.

Kiroro and Kokusai are hidden gems located only a short distance from Hirafu 

The mountain range that these resorts sit amongst is renowned for very frequent snowfalls. This accumulates large amounts of the world famous dry powder snow Japan is known for and is just waiting for you to carve into it.

Because of their locations both these resorts are usually a lot quieter during the week and are perfect places to dodge the crowds. This means you can enjoy epic, untracked powder run after run.

We include all transfers to and from these resorts, fully qualified guiding and professional photography.

We can also go further afield and visit the awesome resort area at Teine if you really want to get away from the crowds. Teine is located near Sapporo and has fantastic views out over the city of Sapporo and the ocean as well as some amazing tree runs.
