Ciao Ontake will be open in 2017-18!!
Ciao Ontake Snow Resort (Takayama City, Gifu) has decided to be open in the 2017-18 winter season. Hida Shinrin Toshi Kikaku Co., Ltd. which is a ski area operator of Ciao Ontake announced that the ski area would not be open in this season on July 4, 2017. Macearth Co., Ltd, its large shareholder, had been searching for companies which will help the operation. This season, the ski area will be operated by the same company, Hida Shinrin Toshi Kikaku Co., Ltd.
By the way, Ontake2240 (Outaki Vill, Nagano) will be open in this season as well, managed by Ontake Resort Co., Ltd. instead of Macearth. However, Sanosaka Ski Area (Hakuba Vill, Nagano) and Echo Valley Ski Area (Nagawa Town, Nagano) which were also operated by Macearth are still not sure to be open this winter.
