During the 3 days from 4/7 (Fri) to 4/9 (Sun), “2023/24 New Model Ski Snowboard Test-riding Event” will be held at the special area near the summit station of Nagasaka Gondola. One of the staff of Team Rescue Wax said, “It was blowing a strong wind yesterday, but we have a calm day today.”

A couple from Saitama Prefecture (Photo) said, “I have seen your reports! It was a good thing that the snow park is open in Yamabiko C Course. The off-piste areas are also exciting and Onsen after riding is our favorite.” Surprisingly, the trees in the summit area of Mt. Kenashi was frozen. In the Snow Park, there were kickers (5m, 8m), hip, 4m vinyl chloride rail, 4m rainbow BOX.

The groomed slopes of Yamabiko C Course and D Course were nicely firm and the surface melted a little, so I could enjoy carving as I wanted. At 9:30 a.m. when the snow started to fall in Uenotaira. In the area and Paradise, the snow changed into dirty color, but there was still enough snow. By the way, Hikage Gondola was closed already, so you can use only Nagasaka Gondola for going down to the bottom area.
