What’s happening today

With the lack of any recent snowfall it would be a good idea to get up on the mountain as soon as possible and enjoy a few freshly groomed runs – we will head over to Niseko Village and ride Snorkle and Wonderland a few times before riding top to bottom via Namara. After putting in the work on the groomers we will head over to Hanazono Ski Ground to check out the action at the Hanazono Freestyle Series – Jib Session

Another great free stlye event happening in upper Hirafu above the Welcome Center from 5pm at Herbies is their first rail jam competition of the year – there will also be a huge Toboggan jump session so get up there and check it out.
