Niseko Grand Hirafu review by Jenn
A good area.

Lift queues weren't too bad and when it snowed it was fantastic.

The fact that you could board till 9pm at night was great.

And the abundance of onsens nearby was lovely.
Date visited: From February, 2005
Snow condition on visit: Didn't snow for a few days and then there were regular dumps of 10-20cm each night
Things I liked: Great powder snow. Allowed to do tree runs.
Things I didn't like: Flat, not much steep terrain. Got tracked out quickly (even in the trees). Difficult to get back to Niseko if the top lifts get closed and you're on one of the other areas.
