Just in time for the festive season, we’re giving a lucky couple or family (two adults, two kids) a four-night stay in the renowned ski fi elds of Japan, courtesy of the luxurious The Kiroro Tribute Hotel Hokkaido. The fab prize includes daily breakfast and 20 percent off all F&B and ski rental and passes.
Resort Two hours from New Chitose Airport, Kiroro Resort is a mountain valley on the west coast of Hokkaido with epic skiing and awesome activities for families. With an astounding average of 21 metres of snow falling annually, the conditions are perfect for both first-timers and thrill-seekers as the two peaks are served by nine lifts and a gondola. There are over twenty different runs, with an equal spread of green, black and blue pistes for all levels.
More good news? The Kiroro, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Hokkaido has recently added a new Combination Lift that directly connects guests to the mountain, making it a convenient ski-in ski-out hotel.
Pick Your Season!
While carving waist-deep powder is Kiroro’s biggest appeal, there’s an abundance of rewarding activities for all travellers. If nature is your muse, take a snowshoe tour to explore the Hokkaido wilderness or visit neighbouring Hopi Hills Farm to meet the friendly farm animals and go horse trekking.
For ages four and up, Kiroro’s Snow Park is great for tubing and sledding, while for the older kids and adults, there are snow banana boats, buggies, fat bikes, snowmobiles and winter segways available for rent.
Summer and autumn in Kiroro reveal a whole new landscape of picturesque forestry, lakes and waterfalls to explore. Activities include fishing, canyoning, kayaking, camping and endless mountain bike trails.
There’s also plenty to explore beyond the Kiroro resort complex. Nearby is the charming seaside town of Otaru, known for its historic canals, glassware, breweries, izakaya and seafood restaurants. Whisky aficionados can also stop off at the town of Yoichi to tour and taste the delights of the Nikka Whisky Distillery.
