THE Hanazono zip-line, alternatively known as a flying fox to those from down-under, was constructed during the green season and has remained open for winter.
It stretches about 200 m down a gentle slope in front of Hanazono 308, with a maximum height of about 15 m above the ground. It’s a very smooth experience; gentle, scenic, and with just a little bit of extreme thrown in at the end. A single ride costs ¥1000, or alternatively a 30-minute pass is available for ¥1500. It’s a great activity if you feel like a quick break from skiing and snowboarding.
