I found it hard to access because of the amount of stairs. Height inside was limited as well as storage for skis. Once up the top the mountain was fabulous!

Its the quietest amongst all in the area, and has many gates to enter, plus it has many options for beginners/ intermediate levels too. Although it is not so accessible, it is worth a half day or full day in this area. Convenient especially if you drive, and favourites of many locals too.

This is the way to get back to the top of the mountain if you did the hike to the summit and ski down annupuri bowl. The first time we went the line was huge cause so many people skied down. Lots of pushing and shoving.

Great gondola to lift you up the hill to access the famously fun and long advanced Trail G7. G7 runs near the forbidden area marked by signs and red rope that you should not cross under any circumstances because of Avalanche risks. Gondola ski racks do not hold snow boards nor large snow skis so you need to be ready... More

It was for us the best section of the mountain. There are lots of trees that you can ski between and good variety of slopes though the black slopes being somewhat limited. And if you are a snowboarder who dislikes getting off a chair lift at the top, it's great that the Gondola runs nearly to the top. Only drawback... More

Loved Annupuri with its long and varied runs. Doesn't get as busy as Grand Hirafu but it's more prone to the wind.

i really like annupuri area cos it's less crowded than grand hirafu area and there are lines with all kinds of levels. From the top of the annupuri in black line, you can ride to Niseko village.

Rode this gondola during the winter, so my objective was to ski back down. That being said, if you just want to go to the top for a view, any time of year you can catch the lift up and then ride it back down at your convenience. Fair warning, it's very cold at the top in the winter!

Its one of the fastest gondolas in the Niseko-UNited area of 4 resorts. For skiers/boarders its just the main transportation to the top to begin the runs. There is plenty of space inside and you can store your gear on the outside. There are queues in peak seasons in winter. A lot of sightseer also take this up during non-peak... More

If your skiing or boarding its primarily a mode of transport. If you are sightseeing then the views are OK but not the best available
