Upper Hirafu’s next major ski-in/ski-out condominium The Maples is set to open in time for winter 2018. The six-storey, ski-in/ski-out condo is located in the heart of Hirafu’s main street Hirafu Zaka and backs onto the ski slopes just above the new Ace Family Lift. It features 69 studio, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments with penthouses, and features retail, commercial and a café.
The project is a joint collaboration between long-time local developer NISADE and Singaporean Cathay Group. Cathay Group says: “The Maples bridges the best of both worlds in Niseko as it marries the urban life of Hirafu Zaka with the grand natural landscape of the national park. With the Ace Family Lift at its door step, The Maples boasts one of, if not, the best ski-in/ski-out locations in Hirafu.”
