What’s happening today
The Hirafu ski ground will deliver some as usual catching the gondola up and flying down Nikabe and Kogen is one of the best early morning loops anywhere on the mountain. Any of the un groomed runs like Konayuki will be probably best avoided due to the freeze thaw conditions.
Although the season is far from over for locals and hopefully there is still a lot of snow to come visitor numbers have started top drop off bars are starting to shut up shop for the season in Hirafu village.
This afternoon Herbies Umbrella Bar will be holding their end of season closing party so why not spend the afternoon watching the world go by from Herbie’s and enjoy a few drinks with your friends. We love Herbie’s!!!
