I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Hakuba. Having recently been to Niseko the previous year, I was surprised that the quality of snow in Japan could be exceeded. Fresh powder was everywhere to be found (something I found less common in Niseko). The things I really enjoyed about Hakuba was the choice of ski resorts (i think there were about... More

There is no wonder why the '98 Olympics were held here. The mountain is HUGE! There are runs for all ages/skills and very little wait time for lifts/gondola when we visited. The 1-day lift ticket was fairly reasonable considering how large the area is.

We are advanced skiers and this mountain has it all. Any level will have a great time here. We went mid Feb and because it was out of school holidays, my kids had a ski instructor each for the week for group prices! Lift tickets were discounted via coupons on the Ski resorts website, so we paid a quarter of... More

Hakuba Resort s quite spread out and getting anywhere is an undertaking. There were no shops in Wadano, (the area within Happo where we stayed),so we had to ask our hotel staff to drive us to the supermarket for any supplies we needed. .Lugging skis and walking in boots to the Happo chairlift each day in icy slippery conditions was...

Wide variety of runs with very few people. Lift lines were virtually non-existent which was good as lift etiquette in Japan is odd to say the least & the lifts not that very fast. Was easy to navigate one-self around the hill & the close proximity of our hotel enabled an easy stroll both to & from the hill.

Our family loved Happo-one. They have a variety of runs appropriate for all levels of skiers and a cool sled park for the little ones.

In mid march some places had closed and some meal options had run out for the season. Some lifts were not operating. Although the skiing was what individuals made of it some establishments had had their fill of tourists and wanted to be left alone. Some restaurants were also empty whilst being open.
