Ishiuchi Maruyama has been a hot topic since before the season.In order to know the whole picture of the renewal, I went to this slope from an early age and asked the Sato sisters who are active in the girls scene to actually experience the reborn Ishiuchi Maruyama.
Comfortable preparation at the new landmark "Resort Center"
This time, we will introduce the new facility of Ishiuchi Maruyama, which has just been renewed, with the theme of "a slope that girls snowboarders can use comfortably".On the day of shooting, the meeting place with them was the "Resort Center" completed in front of the parking lot at the central exit of the slope.The inside of the building is a comfortable space full of openness, which is entirely covered with glass and is reminiscent of an overseas resort.There are changing rooms for both men and women, so you can comfortably change into clothes.Of course, there is also a coin locker.The women's changing room also has a powder room with a hairdryer.The environment is perfect for girls snowboarders, as it is possible to dry wet hair after slipping as well as make-up.
This center house is a collection of functions required for a snow resort.You can buy lift tickets at the information desk, but a new cashless payment for smartphones has been introduced.Other light meals such as bread and coffee are also on sale, and you can prepare while relaxing in the free rest space on the second floor.
In addition, a shop where you can purchase accessories such as goggles and gloves and original goods, and a Goldwin specialty store, which will be the first store in the area, will open.GOLDWINIncluding the brandTHE NORTH FACE,C3FITWe have a wide range of items from snow gear to town items.
Easy access with the world's most advanced combination lift
When you are ready to ski in the center house, you can access the middle of the slope at once with the newly introduced "Sunrise Express", the world's most advanced combination lift. It is a mixed lift in which a 10-seater gondola cabin and a 6-seater chairlift share one wire rope, and until now, there is no need to transfer between the first lift and the second lift. I jumped over the distance where I couldn't access the middle of the slope.What's more, the hooded 1-seater chair is warm and comfortable with a seat heater in the bucket seat that fits your body.In addition, a loading carpet that supports riding is used on the floor of the lift platform to improve safety.Even when it snows, you can enjoy it comfortably and efficiently not only in the gondola but also in the chairlift.
In addition, a new triple lift has been introduced in the middle of the central area, which makes it easier to use the half pipe and makes it easier to access the mountaintop.
Enjoy powder without the cold
The day of shooting is the best powder day of the top season.The two Sato sisters enjoyed the comfortable slopes of Ishiuchi Maruyama.Needless to say, I've slipped on this slope since I was a kid, so I chose a great spot and enjoyed the day while being covered with snow.
After slippingNEW OPENFashionable lunch at the restaurant
The "Austrian Snow House" has been newly established from this season after getting off the mountaintop station of Sunrise Express.Minami Uonuma City has a sister relationship with an Austrian ski resort, and this restaurant was born as part of a commemorative project (Austria SNOW) in 150, which marks the 2019th anniversary of the friendship between Japan and Japan.At this restaurant, you can enjoy authentic Austrian cuisine, and the two enjoyed a fashionable lunch while warming up around the fireplace against the backdrop of the beautiful snowy landscape of the Uonuma Plain.
We asked the Sato sisters who enjoyed the renewed Ishiuchi Maruyama comfortably for a whole day.
"I was surprised that the ride quality of Sunrise Express was good. It doesn't feel like shaking when passing through the pillars, and the seats are warm, so it's very comfortable. Also, I think it's great that access has become easier. Until now, two lifts have been used. In many cases, it was difficult to make a connection and I couldn't get down to the bottom, but with the Sunrise Express, I could get to the same place with one train, so I got off to the bottom more often. I often slip with a large number of people, so 2 people I'm glad that everyone can ride the gondola. I don't think it's so crowded on Saturdays and Sundays, probably because I can ride a lot at once.
I think the center house is also very convenient.Since my house is near, I used to go home and change my clothes, but it's cold right after I get home.It's comfortable to change clothes in a warm center house.I think it has become very convenient for people who come to slip on a day trip.
There are many Japanese foods around here because the rice is delicious, so it is also attractive to be able to eat rare Austrian food.The sweets were also delicious.The reborn Ishiuchi Maruyama is the best.I really want everyone to come. "
"I think that the sunrise express has a positive effect on slipping. The easier it is to access from top to bottom, the longer you can ride, and the longer you ride, the better you will be. If you slide for a long time, you can get into the slide. Moreover, I think it's pretty good that the night game has a long lift that can seat 6 people.
At the center house, you can turn your switch on and off.Come to the ski resort, switch it on once, and turn it off while changing clothes on the way back.You can also have a strategy meeting on how to slide while preparing.The rest is the powder room.It's easy to get rid of makeup in the changing room or restroom if there are many people, so it's easier to set up a dedicated place.There is also a shop so you can shop even if you forget something, and you will be inspired to see new items at the Goldwin store.I don't want to have cash as much as possible, so I'm really happy that I can buy tickets on my mobile phone.
I think the Austrian Snow House enjoys a European atmosphere.The food is delicious and there are lots of beer and wine, so it might be a good idea to come to the restaurant as the main place to play. "
