About
Hanazono Niseko is internationally renowned for its consistently high falls of light powder snow and it's long ski season which runs from early December until April. Averaging around 15m+ of snow each season, Hanazono is famous for its wide open powder bowls and tree runs. The resort is family friendly with a large closed off open area for the resort operated ski school, a beginner snow park and lots of family-friendly activities like our tube park and snowmobiling. Hanazono EDGE is the base to operate your holidays from, it includes a massive restaurant & bar area. Hanazono 308 also has a ticket counter, as well as a rental store and a retail store, which is the starting point for all our activities. In summer it doesn't matter if you’re here for the watersports, golf, biking, hiking, tree trekking or even local cuisine you’re sure to have a great time in and around Hanazono Niseko.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

They sell early bird lift ticket but its only for Hirafu and Hanazono. No upgrade to all mountain.
They don't refund and you have to buy whole new ticket.

Really inflexible.

Thank you for your valuable comments. The lift ticket was originally a special deal that could not be upgraded to another lift ticket, and this was indicated on the website. However, we will try to make our website clearer. Once again, thank you so much for your feedback.

The Hanazono ski area is by a mile my favourite place in Niseko - the 308 plaza is the best "hub" of the resort with a restaurant, shop and ski school. There are many fun activities as well for kids or adults in the area.

The runs are not too hard and are enjoyable to ski down. The lift staff are also very friendly and professional and the lifts are comfortable itself.

Nice ski resort with lots of potential. They just built a Park Hyatt Hotel and Residence with explanations in the plans. Already putting up light poles for night skiing. Plans on putting in new lifts. Currently only three lifts and only day time skiing and snowboarding. They have a park and some of the best tree skiing in Niseko. The most famous of them is called Strawberry Fields.

Wow. We explored Hanazono with good snow and had an epic time in the strawberry fields. For anyone seeking pillows, drops, hits everywhere and some steep tech in the trees into a more casual gradient playground at the bottom. My favourite place in Niseko.

Hanazono is a great place to start sizing your items, rent equipment and then go for practice. There is a very long magic carpet which allows you to go up the slope to practice again and again your drills. Only drawback is that the slope is slightly steep

Although Niseko had much less snow than they usually do this time of year, we were fortunate enough to have a powder day and a Hanazono powder guide our first day. There is lots of terrain that can be reached from lifts (you must go through gates to reach the off piste areas) or by a short climb (except the top of the mountain which is a more strenuous climb depending on wind and visibility). There are some super runs to try including the off piste area, Strawberry Fields.

The main resort is the high end Park Hyatt. If you do not have a car, you will be limited within the hotel compound most of the time as there are not many other restaurants or shops around.

The Edge Restuarant at the base station served some nice ramen, pizza and pasta.

The ski slopes are the longest and most scenic among the four resorts around Niseko. It is recommended for intermediate level skiers.
