    I know I am getting in early, but thinking about January next year for our family of five and another family of four (and whoever I can rope in between now and then). Can someone give me an idea of price per night for a family (presumably two rooms) with ensuites? For dinners, can you cook your own? And what is the cost for the dinner if the hosts cook?

    Hi, what's the room temperature like in Skala? I've been to Hakuba twice in winter and had very different experience regarding room temperature. The first time we stayed in a big hotel and the room was warm enough. The other time was in a top tripadvisor rated B&B but found the room cold (anything else about the B&B was lovely). I was wearing thermos, a fleece and trousers and still feel freezing. Is it a common thing that Japanese style B&B room was cold because the heater was insufficient (it's a kind of electrical heater which blow out hot heater instead of central heating system) ? Or it varies depends on which B&B you stay?
