The west face of Niseko Annupuri ニセコアンヌプリ (1308m), away from the madding crowds of the resort on the eastern side, is a popular smorgasbord of backcountry skiing options. This lowlands hot-laps option is good for when the alpine is inaccessible due to high winds. While the western face of Niseko Annupuri tends to bear the brunt of strong NW winds, skiers can expect good stashes of powder in protected areas. All this is accessible with relatively little effort, and a hotspring soak at the tailhead. Views across to Iwaonupuri are also stellar on a good day.
