Every time I’ve been to Kiroro, the conditions were amazing. I don’t know if it was pure luck, or the mountain is just perfectly tucked away in a spot perfect for winter activities. The lift lines are never long, and if they are, they are super fast. I’ve been to resorts in... More

Kiroro Resort is a gem, it is located in the Golden triangle of Sapporo, Chitose Air Port and Otaru. Meaning it takes only 45men to an hour to get to anyone of those locations. The resort is in progressive development so for those of us who would like to invest in a piece of our... More

Deepest pow I’ve ever ridden. The terrain was amazing but the best riding was done in the backcountry. If your only there for a short time I highly recommend getting a guide to get the most out of your trip ... More

Kiroro is an awesome resort. It has some of the most powder of any resort, and has amazing facilities on top of it all! The slopes themselbes are alright, though they could definitely use a few more. The premium powder zone is great to ski through. The resort is very accessible... More

Kiroro is a top notch resort. It has state of the art facilities, and lift tickets arent even expensive. It is only about an hour and a half from Sapporo, and has some of the best (and most reliable) powder skiing in the world! The only downside: it could use a few more pistes. ... More

A smaller resort in Hokkaido, Kiroro still delivers nice pow without the crowds. The japs tend to stay in the boundary ropes so just duck under one and you'll have freshies for days. Being this area it does tend to get put on wind hold a bit more often. The Sheraton at Kiroro... More

Brilliant little resort on Hokkaido, whilst there is a modest on-piste selection you do need to be careful as some of the runs end up in a long flat valley (looking at you snowboarders). Other than that there is a lot of potential if you are willing to make a short hike and... More
