Grand Hirafu Opens

hirafu-open-2015-11-30

The scene is set for the opening of Grand Hirafu this morning – winter let’s go! We only have limited access to the mountain with the only center course open for turns. Downloading by the Ace Center 4 #2 lift has been requested by the mountain so we will have to wait for top to bottom runs until there is enough coverage at lower elevations.

First Tracks

We are aware of some eager hikers scoring first tracks last week but yesterday Sam from NisekoXtreme and friends sent us some images to drool over from their hike up yesterday!
