HAKUBA - One valley, 10 amazing resorts !
                                                                                                       

Nestled in the heart of the Japanese Alps is the magical resort of Hakuba.

A 50km long valley with 10 ski resorts, excellent transport options, a fantastic range of western style and Japanese accommodation and hot pools.

Each of the ski resorts at Hakuba have their own style and flavour. Although small, each of the resorts is well appointed with lifts and terrain. Choose “Happo One” for long fast groomers, or Cortina on a powder day for perfect powder glades in the trees.

As well as the epic skiing, Hakuba has a plethora of Japanese culture and day trips. Just a train ride from Tokyo, Hakuba is easy to get to and has an abundance of skiing.

MAD TIPS

Most of the front desk staff in the hotels are keen skiers (especially the Kiwi’s and Auzzies), ask them which resort is skiing best each day.
