Well organized, slopes are nicely groomed, staff are pretty friendly even tho they must be overwhelmed with the foreign influx. Really nice how the different areas link, giving a great variety for families with kids at different levels, and real value for money on the lift passes. Rentals and lift prices are reasonable. The restaurant was well designed with surprisingly... More

We had a good time at Happo One, but it really is not a good place for beginner or early intermediate skiers. The runs are long and fairly steep - everything a competent skier looks for. We are a family of diverse ski ability levels. While we loved the convenience of Happo One to Hakupa, and the staff were friendly... More

OVERALL: Spent 10 days in mid-March 2015, and would definitely like to revisit for at least a week. Decent facilities and good terrain gives it good re-ride value. PROS: In mid-March 2015 over a 10 day trip, we had 3 good powder days (>15cm). Great terrain and varied with excellent cat trails, decent steep runs (though probably not true black... More

This is the second time to Hakuba and Happo One. If your after long runs and lots of powder then this is your mountain, great for intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders, although they do lack a terrain park facility. Also they have added a great area near the Sakka lifts for the kids to learn and play on in... More

This is my first visit to Hakuba Happoone Ski Resort. The ski site has a lot of different skill level runs to meet different level visitors. Facilities are adequate and well maintained with good inexpensive restaurant. Of course, the most important thing is the snow quality. Simply great and you will not be disappointed.

In between Tokyo and Nagoya. Excellent total km of skiing is possible from the beginners to advanced skiers. There are many old style Japanese inn and some modern Japanese style chalet and hotels to choose from. Also great village for eating and drinking after skiing. Many Japanese style reasonable restaurants to expensive western style restaurants too. We stayed for 5... More

Being a bit bigger, it is easy to get away from the crowds and being higher, it was easier to find better snow on the warmer days.

Happo is a great place to stay - lots restaurants & amazing food. The Japanese people are very helpful and hospitable. The resort is easily navigated on foot or shuttle to other resorts. Skiing is mediocre. The lifts are old and slow. The ticketing system is a dinosaur - you need to get your pass validated everyday even if you... More
