Grand Hirafu Spring Lift Operations Schedule

Are you planning to visit us for the final weeks of the Spring Season?

To help you plan your time on the slopes, please find below the updated spring lift operations schedule for the remainder of the 2022/23 ski season, including opening and closing times and closing dates.

As of 30 April, these are the runs that remain open

As we approach the final weeks of the season, only a limited number of lifts will be in operation at Grand Hirafu and only the uppermost runs of the resort will be accessible due to the melting snow at the base.

We kindly ask that you exercise caution due to lack of snow cover in some areas and to keep an eye on the Grand Hirafu website for daily updates.
