For a limited time, Club Med is offering a 7-night stay from AUD $2,734 per adult (save $1,166) and NZD $2,979 per adult (save $1,271), with discounts applied on travel dates from 15 December 2022 to 30 April 2023.

Delivering an Unconventional Hokkaido experience
Club Med Kiroro is a takeover and combination of two existing properties to create one integrated snow resort, each with distinctive buildings just a 3-minute buggy ride or a short gondola ride apart. Voted as the best ski resort in Japan in the World Ski Awards 2021, the re-branding and re-designing of the Kiroro resort to Club Med offer guests a new elevated mountain holiday.

Conducted in two phases, Club Med Kiroro Peak will open this December followed by Club Med Kiroro Grand in 2023. With the opening of both buildings, Club Med Kiroro will offer close to 400 guest rooms during the peak winter season.

“Club Med Kiroro lies in the outer bounds of the conventional, where being different and distinctive is ordinary. With the resort’s accessibility, panoramic mountain views, quality powder snow in the winter and close to travel hotspots like Otaru coastal town, there are endless opportunities to create a constant stream of activities all year round. As we continue to invest and grow in our ski leadership with the goal of doubling our mountain capacity in Asia by 2023, we are excited to include another property in Japan yet keeping it distinctive from others. This addition to our ever-growing portfolio will allow guests to discover another side of Hokkaido in the heart of the untouched Kiroro domain.” said Henri Giscard d’Estaing, President of Club Med.

Known internationally as a powder skiing mecca and situated on the fringes of Niseko between Otaru city and Sapporo city, Club Med Kiroro boasts the finest powder snow in the world produced by the combination of Siberian winds meeting the cold waters of Hokkaido Island and has the most snowfall at 21m annually on average – more than anywhere else in the country.

Located 90-minute drive away from the New Chitose Airport and easily accessible by train to Otaru Chikko Station, the ski-in-ski-out resort offers snow enthusiasts direct access to an untouched ski domain with 23 courses for all levels and pristine off-piste ski slopes, providing avid skiers with an unparalleled backcountry exploration across both the Asari and Nagamine mountains. Families too can have a ton of fun in the powdery snow with snowboarding, snowshoe experiences and a majestic snow park.

Club Med Kiroro Peak has a minimum age access of 12 years old while Club Med Kiroro Grand houses a wide host of family-oriented activities and facilities suitable for all ages. Après ski the Hokkaido way as Club Med Kiroro Grand also boasts a 100% hot spring water natural onsen, a cedar-wood sauna and a stone sauna that encapsulate an oriental design.

Guests can also discover local Hokkaido delights and craftsmanship right within the resort. Wander through the gallery that showcases handmade Otaru glass crafts and local artist paintings or savour sake from local breweries and appreciate the artisan brewing process that produced the crisp and fresh nihonshu. The gastronomical adventures continue with a selection of freshly baked pastries made with artisanal Hokkaido flour, a wide range of local wines and cheeses and an avant-garde dining experience French Alps speciality restaurant that combines the best of Japanese local produce, know-how and French savoir-faire.
