Hakuba Norikura is not much visited by foreign visitors due to the distance from Hakuba. Norikura is a medium sized resort next to Cortina. It lacks Cortina's tree runs and it also tends to be spread across the mountain, rather than up it, making most of the runs fairly short. It is still big enough to be interesting for most people and it has a great terrain park, including a very popular half pipe. As for powder most of the powderhounds will be next door at Cortina, often leaving Norikura’s runs untouched so can be a great place to get some freshies.
