HAKUBA SKI RESORTS Happo Goryu Hakuba 47 Cortina Iwatake Tsugaike Norikura Kashimayari Sanosaka
Japan
Specialists in Hakuba Ski Holidays
Cortina is known as the powder capital of Hakuba, both for the huge amounts of snow it gets, and also for the innovative (at least in Japan) step of opening up the trees to the public. And these aren't just ordinary tree runs; they are steep (up to 42°), and the trees are well spaced. You need to be at least a strong intermediate to enter these areas and you should wear a helmet. See the video below for a look at what you are in for. There is also a backcountry gate at the top leading to “No hike” access to more trees-for these you need avi gear. Besides the tree runs, there is a great beginners area at the bottom along with many intermediate runs. The hotel at the bottom deserves a mention it is just so photogenic though it is even better to stay there if you have the chance. If you don’t already have a lift pass it is recommended you buy a lift pass/lunch/onsen package when you arrive. It is really good value and the onsen is great. They often have an all you can eat buffet in the basement for 1,500 yen or so-also great value.
