Ski & See Japan – feat. Hakuba Valley [10 Days]
If you are looking for an epic alpine adventure this winter, then Hakuba is one of the very best destinations in Asia if not the world. Host to the Winter Olympics in 1998, the ski resorts in Japanese alps compares favourably with the best resorts in Europe and North America. With a staggering 11m of snowfall annually (almost 4 times snowfall of leading resorts in the French Alps) there are more fresh tracks to be had and more bumper powder days to enjoy that most could resorts dream of. Only its competitor resort Niseko in the north Island of Japan can beat Hakuba in terms of regular powder snowfall. But, whilst Niseko may get heavier snowfall, the 10 resorts side by side in the Hakuba valley (sharing a common All-Mountain lift pass and with free shuttle buses between each) offer a more compelling range of terrain and slopes to explore.
A resort for all levels from beginner to advanced, you can choose from selection of 10 ski resorts, 137 ski lifts, 9 terrain parks, night skiing until 10pm and an endless choice of hiking trails. Also, the apres ski bars and restaurants in Hakuba village is known across the world for its fine cuisine and distinctly Japanese cultural experience (including a choice of 12 local onsens to soak your muscles after a hard day of riding the mountain)!
