ZAO ONSEN: New replacement ski lift for 2021-2022



The oldest ski lift at Zao Onsen(蔵王温泉スキー場)in Yamagata is going to get a refresh this year.

There has been three versions of the ski lift known as Onsen Number 1 lift, located in the lower Uwanodai area of the resort. The first one opened in 1951. The current 486m lift opened in 1976.

The cables and chairs will be all-new, complete with safety bars. The towers will be relocated from the Karamatsu lift, which is being decommissioned.

New LED lighting will also be installed in the same area for night skiing.

It is hoped that the new lift will be ready by the middle of December 2021 and in action for the 2021-2022 winter season.
