After a one year hiatus Herbies is back!
In 2009/10 Herbies Umbrella Bar was opposite the Park Hotel but this season it has a new home in upper Hirafu village on the former Scot Hotel site.
This season Herbies is being billed as “the ski in, ski out après bar” with great beer, food and even talk of a small terrain park.
The Herbies team have been working hard since Monday to prepare the site and getting the umbrella up.
On Monday the team worked all day in a snowstorm, then on Tuesday the weather cleared a little enabling the team to get the massive umbrella in position.
The next day was a blue bird and the scene was set for a picture perfect hoisting of the umbrella.
Herbies Umbrella Bar will be open in December, take a look at the Facebook event page for the exact details.
I grabbed a quick 360 video that gives you a good idea of what an amazing position Herbies is in for the coming 2011/12 winter season.
