Yesterday was the last day of operations for the old faithful King Hooded Triple Lift #3 or Rock C as it was affectionally known. This lift has been in operation since 1985.
In an exciting development Tokyu resort will start work from today dismantling the lift and replacing it with a new high speed hooded quad lift that will start operations for the coming season in December 2016.
It looks like the plan is to extend the length slightly which will hopefully mean no more uphill walks from the Gondola! Fingers crossed that the new lift will be able to operate in moderate winds and spread skiers and boarder out across the mountain more efficiently than good old Rock C.
Please take a look a Grand Hirafu’s Blog for more details. The Ace Pair lift #3 will be running this spring providing access to the legendary ‘Spring Park’.
