“Favorite slope in Hakuba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

We had a week in Hakuba and this was our favorite resort.
It is quite small but very pretty with phenomenal views if you can visit on a clear day.
It is mostly red and green runs so may not suit expert skiers. The boarders in our group loved it too.
Easy efficient bus transfers from Happo. great for a change of scene.

“great run preparation, excellent snow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

Great resort, very enjoyable skiing. Lots of run variety, and generally nice wide piste areas. Only reason it doesn't get a top rating is that many of the lifts are old & slow, some without safety bars, didn't find any with footrests, and all are set far too low for comfortable load / unload.

“Great day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Iwatake was one of the three resorts we skied when at Hakuba and the most fun. Brilliant day with blue skies, good snow and no wait on the lifts, what else could you ask for. The restaurant on the hill was fab and simply put, a great day.

“Small but heaps of fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

We only visited Iwatake once but I would have loved to go back, especially when they had fresh powder. All the runs were fun and we had a great time carving through the trees. The run from top to bottom was awesome due to it's width and the speed you could reach. We went as a group with varying abilities and everyone had a great time. With some fresh powder this place would be outstanding.

“More than meets the eye”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Great resort for skiing and boarding in powder among the trees or long cruising runs with great views of Happo ski resort. Not as well known as Happo One but a great resort offering many runs at all skill levels. Not busy at all, easy to access with free bus transfers from Happo.

Plenty of chair lifts & 1 gondola and no queues. Well worth trying for 1 day if you're staying at Happo / Hakuba.
