Annupuri has awesome snow and great tree runs. The gondola is quick and takes you more than half way up the mountain. Some times there is a cue at the gondola but at the most we waited like 5 minutes so nothing to complain about.

I love annupuri as compared to other ski grounds in Niseko. Beginners have to option do take the quad lifts and be able to do longer runs than in other places. On a not-so-good days with less pow or on a sunny day, choose annupuri....More

Excellent ride to start your day at the ski fields. Fast and efficient, friendly staff to help. Gets you about half way up the mountain where you can drop into Bears Cafe for a great on the slopes feed.

Niseko is a nice ski area. Everyone can choose the slopes they like. The backcountry is why you come here. Try the gates on a powday.

We counted over 500 people waiting at lunchtime on a Wednesday for this gondola. It's moves rlatively quickly but for the excessive lift pass price you would expect better than a Perisher liftline

We took the gondola twice. It was an easy way to rest and reach the upper slopes of Annupuri. Pros : 1) Can seat 6 pax with skis outside. 2) Comfortable and great place to relax while riding the gondola before conquering the upper slopes....More

Much better than Grand Hirafu, in my opinion. The slopes are legendary and the powder unrivalled. The gondola also has excellent and cheap Japanese curry for when the hunger pangs bite.

ok little ski resort, not worth the bus trip out from niseko, better to heading off to rusutsu as there are more runs to do and better snow conditions as well.

I found it hard to access because of the amount of stairs. Height inside was limited as well as storage for skis. Once up the top the mountain was fabulous!

Its the quietest amongst all in the area, and has many gates to enter, plus it has many options for beginners/ intermediate levels too. Although it is not so accessible, it is worth a half day or full day in this area. Convenient especially if...More
