From the Grand Hirafu blog... "The “King 3 Triple Lift” was completed in December 1985. We will invest 1.2 billion yen to upgrade it to a high-speed quad lift. This will enable an increase in throughput by 600 people per hour, and reduce lift waiting times. Furthermore, as part of the upgrade, we will move the lift 170m downwards from its present location at base station. This will enable smoother access from other trails, in particular, the summit station of the HIRAFU gondola."
