Amazing place for skiing lovers! The area was surrounded with mountains and had over 10 different ski sites where you can go! So you defintely won't be bored! Get the ski pass that can go to different sites to try all of them out! it's not a big international skiing place, cause it took around 4-5 hours from Tokyo to... More

The mountain views were just so awesome with endless snow! It's a good place to go snowboarding/ski! We picked up both at evergreen school, both half day lessons and managed to be pretty good at both! The prices are quite reasonable, definitely will consider to come back here again to snowboard!

We walked from behind Hakuba station, between the rice fields along a well marked path to the river, where we went up into the hills for a rather steep walk up and down in the forest, back to next bridge along the river, then back in a loop to Hakuba station. Very enjoyable, though a bit steep in the forested... More

We were there with the objective to ski and snowboard. A pity we didn't manage to go up the Gondola to the see the view from the peak due to limited time. We spent the first day skiing. For the first half of the day we had lesson with evergreen and the next half we were on our own, so... More

What a great place to ski in Asia. As for size, Hakuba can't compete with places like Trois Valley ans other places in Europe.However, it has guaranteed snow, reasonable prices, at home atmosphere, We usually buy a season pass (seniors 50+ for IWATAKE resort for 25,000 yen. This is an unbeatable deal. Actually, we love Hakuba so much and decided... More

Our girls, 4yr and 6 yr old had two private lessons with Shane from Evergreen. He was very patient and good with kids. We were very impressed with him and what he could accomplish with the girls in a short time. Day 2 we realised it was best to leave some snacks and water and mix that in with the... More

Hakuba is a wonderful place if you are after great terrain skiing. It doesn't get as much snow as Sapporo, but still averages over 2.5m. Heli skiing is available from intermediate skiers to Advance. Great village, with an abundant choice of restaurants and hotels from budget to luxury.

I snowboarded Happo-one in march and the snow cover was excellent, over 1.5m maybe more. We had 20cm of fresh powder on one day, but the rest of my stay it was a spring condition all over the mountain, freezing at the top and boiling hot at the bottom . Unfortunately due to a bad weather we did not manage... More
