Moiwa is a small, boutique ski hill located just 2 km to the west of Annupuri and The Niseko United area.
It has 2 main lifts, 7 courses and a modest vertical descent of 470 metres. The main reasons to ski in Moiwa are the acres of untracked on and off-piste and lack of crowds - it has the same snow as everywhere else in Niseko and fresh tracks are available most days.
The Moiwa ski hill has historically been very popular with the domestic market and most winter sports fans in Japan will recognise the name. The area has not changed much since international interest in Niseko began and it offers a glimpse of what the Niseko area was like prior to worldwide investment.
Moiwa is surrounded by several onsens (hot springs), parks and undisturbed nature. It is just a short drive to Annupuri to link up to the Niseko United and there are free buses transporting people to Hirafu several times a day.
