Niseko HANAZONO (Kutchan, Hokkaido) have announced two new lifts that should be ready for the 2021-2022 winter season.
They are replacing their base quad lift with a shiny new 6-person ski lift - complete with 'leather seats and footrests'. That lift will be 1589m in length.
In addition to that lift replacement, there is going to be a brand new 10 person gondola lift, called Hanazono Symphony Gondola. Also apparently featuring leather seats. That lift will be 1362m in length and have a middle station.
The new lift will open up two new ski runs - Colly's Folly (550m) and Juicy Fruit (800m).
