MORIA Mountain Holding GK has just been announced as the new owner of the Moiwa ski fields, located just west of Niseko United.
This purchase means Moria will assume control of all the lifts, restaurant, ski rental and related amenities, along with the developable land that came with the resort.
It does not, however, own or control the two residential towers, or related parking.
Moria is keen to improve the facilities and services, enhance the image of the resort and put it on the all-mountain pass.
The new owner wishes to work cooperatively with the local community in order to provide visitors with a greater range of choices and more reasons to come to Niseko.
The mountain, under the new ownership, will open as scheduled this season on Saturday, December 6.
