Upcoming developments at Niseko HANAZONO

In recent years there have of course been major developments and changes at the ski resorts in the Niseko area.

Many developments have been happening over at Niseko Hanazono, the most northerly part of Niseko United on the north eastern slopes of Mt Niseko Annupuri. Over the next few seasons there are further major changes coming to Hanazono.

Changes to the ski lift system are going to be happening in time for the 2020-2021 season, but before that there’s some new stuff for the upcoming 2019-2020 season as well.

The new HANAZONO Edge two story Ski Center will open complete with a slope side restaurant, café and bar. This brand new ski-in ski-out facility will be big enough to entertain upwards of 500 people.

There will also be a new Kids Activity Center called Galaxy of Kidz. This new facility is going to feature 10 climbing walls, a floating adventure trail and net playground as well as a restaurant (apparently complete with chef dedicated to the children!)

Last but not least will be some new accommodation called Park Hyatt Niseko HANAZONO Hotel and Residence – this is the construction that was going on close to the base area.

It's always great to see new developments being planned and prepared at Japanese ski resorts and it doesn't look like development in Niseko is slowing down any time soon.

About SnowJapan News

Ski resort news from around Japan

This brand-new section of SnowJapan will feature news about ski resort developments across Japan, along with other interesting news about the snow world here.

As we carefully check and update our ski resort information pages each season, we often add interesting bits of news to the introductory text sections, and feel that some of that information would be of interest to a wider audience.

We're going to start slow but steady, and plan to keep on building and developing the section over the years. We know that many of you are interested not only in the current snow conditions in Japan, but also in the ski resorts themselves... so we are going to endeavor to get that fresh information out to you.

Your input is welcome, too: if you know of any Japan ski and snowboard resort news that you think would be of interest to SnowJapan readers, please contact us at editor@snowjapan.com. Thank you.
