Hanazono Symphony Gondola

The new Hanazono Symphony Gondola can seat 10 people in supreme comfort with individual leather seats. It covers a distance of 1,362 meters in 5 minutes. There is a gondola base station, a middle station and a peak station as can be seen in the map above. Excitingly, the top station provides access to a completely new ski course called Colly’s Folly offering a very wide, cruisy 550 meter run to the middle station with an average slope angle of just over 20 degrees.

Juicy Fruit, which was formerly a part of Stairway to Heaven will be directly accessible from the middle station, and is suitable for beginners.
