SNOWBOARDING IN JAPAN

The Hakuba Valley lift pass provides access to ten individual ski mountains and although there’s plenty of snowfall, the mountains of Hakuba also enjoy a good number of clear, sunny days – which is why it's a snowboarders dream destination!

Hakuba is a friendly resort, and the off-snow faciliaites are as varied as the on-snow riding! In the evenings you can enjoy and onsen (a traditional hot spring bath) to relax and rest your muscles before the next day. Bars and restaurants stay open late, and everything is on offer, from Italian to Inidian and Japanese-style tapas.

The sheer scale of Hakuba makes it great for everyone – we won't ever get bored of treading the same old tracks.

ACCOMMODATION AND TRAVEL

We’ll meet in the Airport in Tokyo and travel out together to resort by bullet train.  We will stay in the town of Goryu just 350m from the lifts! The Lodge is set among a boutique set of terraces.
