A ski-in, ski-out upscale hotel near the Annupuri lifts, the Northern Resort is the place to head if you’re happy to be away from the action in Hirafu in favour of first dibs at the untracked snow every morning. You are out on a limb, but that's not necessarily a poor choice.

The rooms are spacious (by Japanese standards), with quality furnishings and bathrooms with bathtubs.  Once you’ve checked-in, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips, including good dining options, an onsen and sauna, spa treatments, and a library, in addition to ski storage and laundry facilities.

There’s always the bus if you fancy a trip into Hirafu or another area, but if you like to explore different dining and drinking options each evening this might not be the place for you.

Northern Resort is at the Annupuri base station, at the far west of the mountain and near Niseko town. There is a regular shuttle bus to the other bases, which takes about 20 minutes to get to Niseko Village and a further 20 minutes to reach Hirafu, where there are more restaurant and bar options. But the public areas and facilities of the hotel really are very nice, so for those who are happy to be largely hotel-bound, we couldn’t think of anywhere better to be marooned. Restaurants are excellent and Annupuri has its own equipement hire, ski school…etc.

Distances to:

Ski Lifts: 200 metres
Shuttle Bus: 0 metres
Restaurants and Bars: 10 kilometres
Shop(s): 10 kilometres

The Northern Hotel is a five star hotel. Indicative prices range from about ¥26,000 (£150) per room per night during the lowest season, to ¥71,000 (£410) for a room during the peak periods, with dinner included in the rate.
