Mizuno no Sawa a big hit

By 23rd January 2010 August 27th, 2013 Uncategorized

NISEKO Village says public response to Mizuno no Sawa has been ‘overwhelmingly positive’ since opening the formerly off-limits run this year.

Head of ski patrol at Niseko Village, Nobuyuki Nomura, said that in less than two weeks, about 150 skiers and boarders participated in the daily educational lecture, and then rode the run with the guidance of ski patrol.

“Some participants have said they look forward to when it is more easily accessible, but they all understand the effort it has taken to bring it to this point, and respect the rules that are in place for their safety.”

Meanwhile, Niseko Village’s gondola has been fitted with 30 test racks for fat skis and snowboards, meaning the days of carrying them in the gondola could be nearing an end.
