Alpen Ridge was one of the first ski-in/ski-out condos built in Hirafu in the modern development era, which began in the mid-2000s. Along with The Vale Niseko next door, its developers jostled for prime position alongside the family ski run, perfect for beginners but also good for others who can access higher parts of the mountain from the family lift here.

Alpen Ridge looks great from the outside and, similarly, features stylish, modern interiors with high quality finishes and appointments. Connectivity is guaranteed in every apartment with free high-speed wireless internet, telephone for internal and external calls and intercom, LCD TVs, satellite television with English and Chinese language channels and multi-region DVD player.

Studio and 1-bedroom apartments have one bathroom. 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom apartments have ensuites in the master bedroom plus a shared bathroom. Penthouse 4-bedroom apartments have two bedrooms with ensuites, and a shared bathroom. Well equipped kitchens with sleek white bench tops are complemented by warm timber tones. The welcoming living spaces are designed for comfort, complete with gas fireplaces.

Alpen Ridge

Setting / Atmosphere

Alpen Ridge is located in the “Family-Zaka Street” precinct of Upper Hirafu Village – so named for its location next to the family run. This little pocket of Hirafu is one of the most vibrant, modern little entertainment and accommodation precincts in Niseko.

Lifts / Transport

Walk out onto the family run from the front door, and access the upper mountain via the family lift. Or jump on the free shuttle bus which stops right outside and can whisk you up to any of the lifts, or anywhere else around the village including most shops, restaurants and bars.

Restaurants / Bars

Just a few steps away, the Vale’s Vale Bar & Grill restaurant offers an excellent range of meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. AYA Niseko also has a restaurant on premises, or a short walk from your front door is the main street of Hirafu – groceries, bars, everything is close by.

    This is the closest accommodation to the Ace Family Quad Lift you can get. Perfect way to start off the morning. Coffee at Fresh Cafe, NBS school and rentals are right downstairs in your building also. This is absolutely the most convenient place to stay if you like to get on the runs fast and get back to your pad to shower and head out to dinner. There is ski storage right downstairs before you head out to the slopes. Alpen Ridge is also right in the center of Hirafu Village so there are many restaurants. The convenience is godsend if you have young kids. The apartments are also very nice and well furnished.

    I have been staying at Alpen Ridge every time I am in Niseko since 2008. The wow factor for since 2008 has yet to fade off! It is great work to get a great project up and running but it is more incredible to keep that going year after year. Great work guys!

    Location is great. Ski hire and school in basement with locker facility for each apartment. Ski lift about 30 metres up hill. Coffee shop off lobby for quick and simple brekky or lunch. Reception staff super helpful with info and bookings for dinner. Great eating options short walk away. Apartments well fitted out. We had 3 bed, 2 baths and adequate living area. Lots of technology in room but kids really only interested in having the wifi password. Huge drying cupboard to cope with ski gear and washing for 5 as well as separate laundry. Two good onsens also nearby.
