Wonderful snow for skiing
Feb 2020 • Family
We've stayed for a week at Kiroro and enjoyed fantastic powder snows.
There is a gondola from Tribute hotel to ski piste so you can access easily.
The variety of slopes is family oriented with several green and red ones. The grooming is good, the trail width very wide.
Overall highly recommended.

Great if it snows, otherwise a boring hill.
Feb 2020 • Friends
Not a lot of vertical to the mountain, but when the snow falls in abundance it is worth skiing. If the snow base is typical, then the side country is a lot of fun, but the river would need to be covered to make travel safer. Beacon required for side country, probe and shovel should be also be carried. They should consider cutting some of the underbrush to some runs and make for better tree skiing and open slopes.

Dear rhondaw859, Thank you for visiting Kiroro Snow World and for taking the time to leave this review. We will pass your comments on to our mountain operations team. We agree, the skiing is best when there is fresh snow. Thankfully this season, we have already had over 10 metres of fresh snowfall by the end of January. Let's hope for more of the same next year when international travellers can return! We hope you can make it back for another winter holiday soon. Best regards, The Kiroro Resort Team

A package for activities would be nice
Jan 2020 • Family
Good activities to choose from, but expensive and it really adds up day after day. A multi-day pass for the sledding and tubing would be nice, or some kind of package deal geared toward families with kids who aren’t interested in skiing. The equivalent of $60US to go sledding and tubing for one day is kind of crazy.

It was crowded but it was also a holiday. I understand that most of the time it is not. Easy access to several lifts. Fast lines and good service. Very pretty with nice views from the lifts. I would come back to this resort just to see more of it.

Great hotel and ski instructor.
Apr 2019 • Friends
Kiroro Sheraton hotel has improved in almost every aspect as my last stay was the fifth time in last three years. A big thumb up to their management team and well trained staff. I took a few lessons from Kiroro Ski School last week and happened to meet one of my best ever instructors Evie Harris. She is such a great coach that I feel like I can become an expert skier sooner than ever. Highly recommended.

Not too crowded and good powder
Mar 2019 • Family
There are only a limited amount of slopes compared to some larger ski resorts, but if you have small children this is a good choice.

Dear Sg2kidsUS, Thank you for your valuable comment. Indeed currently we only have 22 slopes, but we hope that in the near future we can accommodate customers with family and small children better. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back.

Beautiful ski mountain
Jan 2019 • Solo
The snow is pure white and smooth. The weather is freezing cold. It takes about 45 minutes to get from Otaru to Kiroro snow mountain by car. It’s the nice place for ski.

The weather this year is unfortunately quite freezing, but I hope you still had a good time. For the best powder, January and February are our peak. If you have a chance, please come back. We look forward to welcoming you again.

I give 5 stars because my holidays in Kiroro fulfilled all my expectations. Endless amounts of snow, the best powder I have ever skied. My home is in the Alps, but I have never seen anything like it. The many slopes in these glorious surroundings are excellently maintained, the ski rental business is well organised, you get your stuff literally within 10 min. There are plenty of lifts, and you NEVER have to wait. There are black, red and green slopes, it’s your choice. Kids of all ages will love it. If you can’t stop at sunset feel free to do a bit of night skiing on very well-lit slopes. And all of that – ski pass and rental of equipment - at a fair and competitive price.

Dear Peter Henri H, Thank you very much for your kind review. We are glad to hear that your holiday was fulfilling and met your expectations. In December of this year we will have another combination lift & gondola in place to further provide guests with easy access to the slopes. Thus Tribute Portfolio hotel will also become a ski-in ski-out hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Powder Machine
Feb 2019 • Friends
We have been skiing around Hokkaido for a week and had our last day at Kiroro. This place is excellent with small crowds, cheap lift tickets, and tons of powder. It is also very friendly to skiers who want to go into the side country. Our guide registers our group and took us through several gates where we got spectacular powder. U like Niseko or Rusutsu, there were not hoards of westerners tearing up the frieshies. The lifts are modern and all are either gondolas or bubble chairs. The base area is newly built with a modern hotel and good food. The only negatives were that vertical was limited, there are almost no steeps and run outs are long and can be flat. If you want great powder away from the crowds, this is a place for you.

Thank you very much for your response. Were you able to try out our Off-Piste areas as well? We hope you will come back to our resort in the future. At the end of this year, we will have another set of combination lift/gondola in place to give guests more access to the slopes from the hotel. Please come back and stay with us again so you can enjoy even more next time!.
