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.
