Gate 9 - Waterfall

Gate 9 - Waterfall

Access: Between Hanazono 2 & the start of Holiday Run.

Aspect: South - South Easterly

Safety Considerations: Exposed waterfall situated at skiers left at the bottom of the gully & long creek bed ride out can be difficult for the less advanced rider. Particularly difficult for snowboarders to maintain speed.

Situated on the ridge between Grand Hirafu and Hanazono, Waterfall hosts a great open, gladed pitch that is a snow magnet. Ride it early on a powder day to enjoy the extra windblown snow the area attracts. Traverse further along the ridge for less tracks. Ride it later on a sunny day for spring slush laps.

Wide open fluffy turns can be enjoyed across the whole pitch with the option to cut out early onto Holiday access track or ride the fall line to the creek crossings to traverse out past the famous waterfall to your left as you make your way back to the course.

Situated just up from the top of Hanazono 2, it is a great way to come home from a backcountry lap.
