I started on day 1 as a beginner and by the end of day 4 I was coming down intermediate runs without a worry. It’s a great place to learn, plenty of lessons available if you want. Plenty of space on the runs for everyone....More

Really liked skiing here. Part of the bigger Hakuba Valley group which increases options. Village is very spread out so a good accommodation location is essential.

For the beginner to the dedicated skier, the whole area has many runs; from well groomed, gentle beginners runs to challenging off-piste forest runs.

Ski Hakuba mid feb 2017. Multiple mtns in Hakuba, Happo one is the largest. All mountains have shorter runs than the us but snow quality is superb and lift lines short.
