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.

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.
