The SNOW EGG will soon “hatch” into a beautiful ski-in, ski-out resort by Riccardo Tossani Architecture (RTA).

A unique “Guerilla” or “Pop-up” store, the SNOW EGG dome brings to Hirafu the kind of fashion brand-retail experience previously missing. Perched, with skier access to the Family ski run at the Ace Family Pair Lift, and located just below the Alpen Hotel on Hirafuzaka, the combination of bar, food, music and light shows in a lounge setting within a brilliantly illuminated globe makes the SNOW EGG a must-see and easy to get to landmark attraction for Niseko.

As the Master Planner of Hirafu’s new main street, Hirafu-zaka, Architect Riccardo Tossani of RTA has promoted the revitalization of Hirafu Village through design for several years. Concerned about a loss of vitality in the Upper Village as a result of recent building demolitions, the SNOW EGG is conceived as a means to “light the fire” of revitalization in upper Hirafu, and usher in the new chapter of development currently underway.

Master Architects for Hanazono Village and several key resort projects in Hirafu, RTA are the creators and designers of the SNOW EGG and are currently designing an exciting new resort that will open on this site in the near future.

SNOW EGG — a temporary “happening” intended to bring vitality and entertainment to Upper Hirafu in advance of several new high-end resorts planned for Upper Hirafu Village.

SNOW EGG is a taste of the out-of-the-box thinking that will energize Hirafu’s future once RTA’s projects are completed, putting Hirafu on the center stage of the World’s most desirable resort destinations! >
