Niseko Annupuri International Ski Area|New lift for beginners and expanded piste available in winter 2017

The Niseko Annupuri ski resort, currently equipped with one gondola and 4 lifts, announced that a new quad lift for beginners, Dream Quad Lift No. 1, would be in operation as well as an expanded course at the foot of the hill would be open to the guests this coming season, winter 2017.

The new lift will be constructed on a gentle slope at the base of the mountain and operated at a lower speed than the existing ones for easier and safer use for all the guests. With an expanded piste, the new area is particularly ideal for snow sports beginners as well as for those who aim to step up to an intermediate level.

While the resort’s extensive slopes have always been popular for pleasant long cruising, the new lift, coupled with the world famous powder snow, will complement the resort where all the levels of skiers and snowboarders can enhance their resort experience in Annupuri.

We look forward to welcoming everyone - individuals, with families and friends - at the new Niseko Annupuri International Ski Area this winter!
