Slope Planning, along with releasing this new Happo Banks teaser, has just announced that the 2016 Happo Banks park, held at Happo One Ski Resort in Hakuba, is due to open on Saturday, January 30th, 2016. This year will bring further improvements to Happo Banks, from a tweaked course layout to even higher quality park maintenance, and the staff is looking forward to seeing everybody finding new lines and having fun this season.
For the Happo Banks Opening Festival, there will be guest pro riders who will put on a course riding demo, along with other planned festivities. For more information, keep an eye on their Facebook page here or on the ‘Topics’ tab of their website here (Japanese only). Details will be posted closer to the event date.
Finally, Happo Banks have made an Instagram account. They will be posting current park conditions and past video edits, so they are definitely worth keeping tabs on. Follow their Instagram here. Also, if you tag your photos with #happobanks they will show up automatically in the ‘Photo’ section of the site. Sounds like a fun way to share your stoke!
