Zip Tour

Open year-round, the Zip Tour races down from Zendana Station (our summit station via the gondola) to the ski slopes below. A total length of 1501 meters, it has a maximum height of 239 meters, making it number one in all Asia (as of January 2018)!
Revel in the exhilaration of soaring through the sky along a special 19-mm thick, 2.4-ton cable, and put yourself at ease knowing the resort has adopted NASA's launchpad Emergency Egress System to get participants to safety in times of need.
The tour itself takes participants over the verdant green (or winter white) of the great outdoors surrounding Lotte Arai Resort, the resort's expert ski courses, and Kokenashi Lift. During the first half of the course, participants will enjoy the thrill of speed while the second half offers a horizon-spanning view of the Takada Plains and the Hokushinetsu mountains.
