Lift Upgrades for Niseko Hirafu

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.
