Hakuba Resort s quite spread out and getting anywhere is an undertaking.
There were no shops in Wadano, (the area within Happo where we stayed),so we had to ask our hotel staff to drive us to the supermarket for any supplies we needed. .Lugging skis and walking in boots to the Happo chairlift each day in icy slippery conditions was not ideal either.
We loved the option of going to Iwatake for the day but having to stick to a bus timetable is not something we wanted to do everyday,
Happo has lots of runs and minimal crowds but does get busy on the weekend. Try to make Saturday a travel day as it is the busiest day on the slopes with lots of locals skiing as well as the tourists. There is a good variety of cafés on the slopes and terrain for all levels of expertise.
