Ski pro or novice? Hakuba, situated at one of the highest points of the Northern Japanese Alps, boasts some of the best snow powder and lends to various levels of expertise. The former host of the 1998 Winter Olympics is made up of 9 ski resorts, 135 lifts, 200 slopes and some of the longest vertical ski runs in the world (up to 8 KM). Off-piste, Hakuba is great choice for those who would like to gain insight into Japanese culture. Book a relaxing soak at a traditional Japanese onsen (hot spring), visit Zenko-ji Temple, and get up close and personal with snow monkeys at Jigokudani Wild Monkey Park. With plenty of terrain to explore and a good range of après-ski activities, it’s no wonder Hakuba is a popular destination amongst Japanese and international tourists alike. Curious to find out more?
