What’s happening today
Today we will head over to Hanazono Ski Ground and take a few quick laps on the Hanazono Hooded Quad Lift #3 and hit Yotei Sunset where we will be able to put in some fast deep turns in the deep powder before heading down to Strawberry Fields via Crystal Garden and Stairway to heaven.
In the afternoon at 4pm there will be a Japanese Taiko Drumming performance next to Seicomart which is always worth a look especially if you have never seen Taiko drumming before.
