The tree run area is in the Hishigatake National Forest that stretches from near the top of the second quad lift to both sides of the lift. Since the forest area is a national forest and we did not have permission to use it, we could not ski in this area until now.
However, with the increase in the number of skiers and snowboarders who prefer powder snow these days, Cupid Valley has received permission to use the national forest in response to the requests of customers who want to enjoy powder as well. In response to the demand from skiers and snowboarders who want to enjoy the powder at Cupid Valley, we have obtained permission to use the national forest and have prepared the environment to open it to the public as a tree-run area from January 21 (Fri.).
The tree run course is also known as the “self-responsibility area,” and in order to ski in this area, you need to submit a consent form at the information desk on the second floor of the Center House, or show the reply email of the application form you submitted on the web. After that, an armband will be lent to you with a deposit of 1000 yen, which you will wear while skiing. When you return the armband, the 1000 yen will be refunded.
Mr. Toshiyuki Sato, General Manager of Cupid Valley, said, “Now that the environment has been improved, we can enjoy the tree run area at Cupid Valley. We hope you enjoy the new attraction of Cupid Valley to the fullest. We are looking forward to your visit.
