The King No.3 Lift will be reborn as a high-speed 4-person lift in Dec 2016.
The King No. 3 Lift, which provides access to the HIRAFU summit and the Hanazono area, will be upgraded to a high-speed 4-person lift.
Currently, the lift transports 1,800 people per hour. We expect this to increase to 2,400 people after the upgrade, reducing lift wait times.
In order to perform the upgrade, the existing Sanroku station will be moved 170m downslope. This will enable easy skiing/riding access to the HIRAFU Gondola Station, and improve the convenience of nearby courses.
