Great place to stay if you're heading to the Hakuba Valley next winter; though I'm sure it would be a great base for a summer holiday too!

I stayed at Beards Den in Feb/March 2015. I have stayed in multiple snow accomodation throughout the world and in Hakuba, this was by far the best. Lesley and Rob were always happy to provide advice on where the best snow would be, and they were always correct. Cooked breakfast, amazingly large, spacious and comfortable rooms. Snow runs will now...

The Bears Den to us is THE perfect place to stay for an awesome ski trip in Japan. It was actually our 4th trip there and we will certainly keep returning.
