We recently spent 10 days at Big Bear Chalets 2 and 3 (interconnecting) with a group of 8 friends. The chalets are impressive from the first step inside. You definitely get what you pay for. Good location, close to local ski bus stop. The loungeroom is comfortable and the kitchen well appointed with all very modern appliances. I loved the... More

Thank Craig and Matt again for a great time in Japan. Love the place and staff are great. Look forward to seeing you again next year. Wish I could move in. Book with these guys. Some person and welcoming every time. Oh and best place to ski in the world I think.

We have just returned from a week staying at Big Bear Chalet one. This 3 bedroom chalet was the perfect base for our week of skiing. The chalet has 3 large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large very comfortable living room and a well equipped kitchen. We loved the chalet option as it gave us a bit more space, to... More

This was our first year visiting this area, and we had a nice stay at one of the cottages of Morino Lodge, but the area is a bit difficult to get to, especially with the record amounts of snow the area has received. The staff was very helpful in assuring that we made it in alright and had everything we... More

We loved our stay at Morino Lodge. The staff were very helpful and always assisted with booking the many close restaurants, ski lessons, transport etc. It's only a 3 minute walk to the bus stop that services most ski resorts, 10 minutes walk for the others. Included breakfast was great. Wonderful views into Wadano forest. Thanks to the staff at... More

Our first visit to Hakuba with 3 teenagers... Morino was everything we wanted and a whole lot more! Matt, Craig, Jeff & Dan were superb hosts, always available to advise us on the daily best snow, arranged dinner bookings @ fun places to eat at night & even provided us with a detailed train schedule for our departure. Morino has... More

Our family of 4 stayed in a Japanese-style room and really enjoyed our whole visit. The room was warm, large enough for us and had a great view of the snow and the forest. There was a compact bathroom, and a TV with in-room Apple TV (which we didn't use due to wonderful skiing outside!) The location is great -... More

A well-equipped, full size kitchen made meals easy to prepare if required. The chalet also had a spacious living area with efficient cosy heating which made a great place to... More

I can not sing enough praise for the "family" at Morino. This was my second visit and it surpassed even the first one. Craig, Matt, Jeff, Josh, Pat and his "elves" were amazing making sure our every need was answered. I had odd requests for extra bedding, and some unusual last minute arrangements and they took care of everything without... More
