“Not ideal.”

Hakuba Happoone Ski Resort
Ranked #1 of 55 things to do in Hakuba-mura
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 April 2014

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.

Wide variety of runs with very few people. Lift lines were virtually non-existent which was good as lift etiquette in Japan is odd to say the least & the lifts not that very fast. Was easy to navigate one-self around the hill & the close proximity of our hotel enabled an easy stroll both to & from the hill.

Our family loved Happo-one. They have a variety of runs appropriate for all levels of skiers and a cool sled park for the little ones.

In mid march some places had closed and some meal options had run out for the season. Some lifts were not operating. Although the skiing was what individuals made of it some establishments had had their fill of tourists and wanted to be left alone. Some restaurants were also empty whilst being open.
