Still the best
What has not been said about Niseko Grand Hirafu (and connecting).

When it's on - which is often - it really is simply the best.

It may not be the steepest.
It may get very busy.
It may get too many, er, boisterous foreigners spoiling things a bit.
It may get windy affecting lifts too often.

But the snow is just awesome and hard to beat.

Great restaurants and nightlife too.

Just don't go expecting a quaint traditional Japanese experience.
Date visited: No specific date.
