    First time here after inly visiting Niseko. If you are looking fir very challenging slopes, then Happo One is the best in Japan. It feels very special skiing down the Downhill slope from top and you shall stop a higher mid right side abs only remember Hermann Maier crash in 1998. You can see that everybody on all slopes ski very well abs this is no room for any beginners at all. You feel like in the Alps with similar vegetation and stunning Mountain views. The downside is the chairlift and gondolas are 40+ year old abs there has been 0 investment in the facilities. Ski lift prices 20% cheaper vs Niseko.
    Indeed will be back!

    A nice resort - although suffering a little from no fresh snow . We found some nice runs to fill in the morning - as it did soften by late morning on a sunny day

    Craft beer stop for a break by the fire a nice touch

    My partner and I were reluctant to hike for hours up the mountain but decided to remove heavy stuff in our bags and go ahead. It was a cloudy day so when we were on top, we couldn't see reflection of the mountain peaks in the background. But it was good enough as the hike was not that hard.

    My teenage son and I had an awesome holiday at Happoone and would recommend the area to anyone keen on great snow and wonderful people and culture. All the facilities are A grade and the people so friendly and helpful. Heaps of long runs and awesome views

    Lots of variety and big when including Goryu side. Cheaper than Happone and less exposed, so less wind.

    Went here as it is a short walk from town. 460 Yen entry for adults to go to the top of the ski jump and see some memorabilia from the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. Worth a visit.

    Two of my teenagers wanted to try snowboarding. So we headed to Hakuba for the weekend. Lucked out and came across Hakuba Snow Sports School just up from our hotel. I have nothing but great things to say about my kids instructor, Merry. I got them private lessons at ¥20,000 for both for 2 hours. My kids told me it was the most fun they’ve had in awhile. They also told me Merry was better than any ski instructors they’ve had in the past. Besides Merry, I interacted with some of the other staff. They are a mix of Kiwis, Aussies, and UK folks. All are native English speakers and very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this company to anyone traveling to Hakuba wishing to get ski or snowboard lessons. The slopes the school used were also perfect for learning. My kids would still like a few more lessons so we will definitely be headed back to Hakuba for the Hakuba Snow Sports School. Thanks for giving my kids a great experience guys! Also, if you don’t have your own gear there are at least a couple rental places a short walk from the school. Just give yourself at least 30 minutes prior to your lesson to get everything you need.

    This was my first time snowboarding and some of the mountains had closed early because of COVID19 and the season not having too much snow, which we thought we might get. However, Goryu did not disappoint. Enough powder and snow to learn on, great for beginners and there were heaps of snow schools around to teach you if you needed it.

    We stayed at gondola apartments so it is a fair way away, but escal plaza has heaps in it to eat and drink and is worth the little drive

    Bridge is located in the middle of a quaint and quiet small town. There is a park close by and a small shop that sells ice cream and other treats. Great place to take the family for a quick visit in between trips.

    Beautiful place and location, spectacular view. Limited menu, but it is o.k
    Must visit during a sunny day. If too many clouds, you will not see the view.

    Bridge five minute drive away from the hotel. Ample parking with beautiful breathtaking views of the Japanese Alps. There is a creek where you could walk down and feel the cool water running though. Great place for a quick visit.

    A round trip ticket from Gondola Adam is Y2900. There's an english map at the gondola entrance. Good trip for families. It takes 1-1.5 hours to reach the lake. The furthest chair lift quits running at 1630 so the latest you should start this hike is 1330.
