The gondola will also be spinning for the spectacular 1.3-kilometer illumination event Mountain Lights, which opens this summer, and for one of the world's largest zip lines, so come and enjoy the new attractions on the gondola.
Here is an extract from the text in YouTube.
S-LOG Week Number  The Snowmmelier" new gondola and chairlift review Niseko Japan
This week I had a free day and I decided to visit the Hanazono Resort in Niseko. I had yet to ride the new gondola and 6 person chair lift that opened from this season. I wanted to see and experience the design while exploring the mountain. I have been riding at Hanazono since the early 1990s shortly after it opened and it is interesting to see how the mountain has been developed and the many changes.
There is a lot of talking during this episode, I hope you can enjoy my chatting and some of the behind-the-scenes info I provide about the Niseko area!
