Niseko which is famous for it’s skiing will some day be famous for it’s mountain biking as well. The terrain and size of the hills in and around the area are ideal for mountain bike trails. Currently there are a few gem trail rides that are only really known to local riders. The resort area of Annapuri which includes the 4 ski hills of Hanazono, Hirafu, Niseko Village (Higashiyama), and Annapuri ski hill all have some mountain bike trails that are open for public use through out the summer months. Annapuri ski hill runs their gondola in the summer and allows DH bikes up to the top of the lift. The DH trails are defined as open trails on the ski grounds. Known more for speed then technical riding. The Hirafu gondola has recently been opened up for DH riding with guided MTB tours with our partner company RHYTHM CYCLES. Rentals and Guided tours run from mid June till mid October. To find out more get in touch.
