Yes, all lift tickets from 2 day to 7 day must be used on consecutive days. 8 day to 14 day lift tickets allow for two rest days. I.e. an 8 in 10 day lift ticket is valid for 10 days from the date of purchase and you can ski any 8 out of those 10 days. All 15 to 21 day lift tickets allow for three rest days.
If you're an intermediate to advanced skier/rider and are here for more than a few days we recommend an all-mountain pass. If you're a beginner to low intermediate or only here to ski one or two days and want to keep costs down then a Hirafu pass should do the trick for you. As Hirafu passes do comprise of approximately 60% of the Niseko resort. There is plenty of terrain to keep you amused for a couple of days.
A Grand Hirafu lift ticket can be used both at Grand Hirafu and Hanazono. This comprises of approximately 60% of the Niseko United ski area and includes the snowboard terrain park and access to the peak.
The Niseko United All Mountain Pass can be used at Niseko Annupuri, Niseko Village (formerly Higashiyama) Niseko Grand Hirafu and Hanazono. For more information and lift ticket prices please visit the Niseko United website.
