Panorama hits that sweet spot between alpine lodge stylings and a sharp modern aesthetic. Rich hardwoods and rough-hewn stone meet vaulted ceilings in the main living room, maximising light, space and grandeur. Floor-to-ceiling windows and an expansive balcony along the Yotei-facing side of the building showcase that epic view while a feature fireplaces warms the interior.

The chalet has six bedrooms across three floors. The entrance and street-facing ground level are on the second floor, but the cliff-side location means that even basement-level bedrooms have windows with views towards Mt Yotei. Each bedroom has an en suite and there is an additional toilet on the entrance/living level. Special mention goes to the master bedroom, which has a balcony with Mt Yotei views and a grand bathtub with ski slope views.

The basement floor has laundry space and a dedicated media room, while the second/ground floor is where you’ll find an expansive open-plan living area with kitchen, dining and living areas, views and a small balcony. There is a dry room just off the entrance with heated racks so your snow gear will be warm and dry the next day.

Panorama is located in prestigious Lower Hirafu, in fitting company with some of Niseko’s grandest estates. The chalet overlooks adjacent rice fields, so while it’s within reach of everything, its removed from the hustle and bustle in a peaceful part of town with enough space that you can make noise without being a bother to your neighbours.


If you don’t have a car or concierge driver, there is a shuttle bus stop a few minutes walk from Panorama. On the shuttle it’s just two or three minutes up the hill to Upper Hirafu and the lifts. If you don’t mind a bit of exercise it might take 15-20 minutes to walk to the Ace Family lift, which is a high-speed quad that you can use to lift-hop higher up.


Lower Hirafu Village is a great spot to explore, with some of Niseko’s best bars and izakayas hiding between chalets and log cabins. Find Izakaya Rin, Nagomi and Ebisutei at this end of town, and check out Koto Bar and Kemuri Bar. Just metres from your front door is restaurant Yo Kaiseki – be sure to book this in advance (and tell them Powderlife recommended it!).
