Description

This hike is essential to accessing the Niseko/Annupuri back bowls.

It is approximately a 15 minute bootpack that is well trodden and very popular on a sunny day.

It is is accessed via Gate 2.

Check the local Nadare Forecast (linked below) for avalanche conditions and gate openings.

Access the boot pack by exiting Gate 2, just above the Jumbo Pair Lift 4.

If accessing the gate from either of the Wonderland Chairs, traverse hard to the skiers right, aiming for the summit station of the Jumbo Pair Lift 4.

It is much easier to access via the Jumbo Pair Lift 4. http://niseko.nadare.info/
