We are delighted to learn that construction will start in spring 2016 on the first stage of upgrades to 2 of Niseko Hirafu’s busiest lifts.
Commencing right after the snow melts in 2016 will be changes to the King Hooded Triple Lift #3, changes will be:
- Moving the starting point 130m downhill to allow for easy access from other lifts – no more walking from the Gondola.
- Changing the lift to a high speed quad – a 30% increase in capacity to 2,400 people per hour.
Expected to start the following summer will be a redevelopment of the Ace Family Pair lift. This lift will be replaced with a new high speed quad or triple lift.
