Hakuba

Hakuba is internationally known as one of the host venues of the 1998 Winter Olympic Games; selected as such due to its world-class terrain, courses, and the abundance of powder snow that covers the mountains each winter. Comprising 11 individual snow resorts (almost all are covered with 1 lift pass), Hakuba is a mecca for snow sports enthusiasts seeking the complete package of a truly international resort - from the basics of a childrens ski school to the hardcore thrills of backcountry tours and additional activities such as snowshoe trekking. Hakuba's global profile and appeal for foreign visitors means you won't be caught short but any lack of English-language businesses, including numerous accommodation and dining options, apres ski, and all the comforts of one of Japan's best and biggest snow resorts.Outside of winter, Hakuba is increasingly known for the beauty and activity of its 'green season', during which time both local and international visitors head to the mountains to escape the oppressive heat and humidity of cities and enjoy numerous pursuits including hiking, mountain-biking (MTB), rafting, canyoning, standup paddleboarding (SUP), fishing, and other activities.
