BUILT TO SATISFY
Secluded amidst rugged alpine scenery in the north of the Hakuba Valley, away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Hakuba Norikura Onsen Ski Resort, or Hakunori for short, is popular for its wide variety of courses, excellent powder and relaxed local atmosphere. With a range of facilities, accommodation and hot springs, it is well-equipped to offer the ideal snow resort getaway for everyone from couples to families, and groups of mates to solo travellers. Hakunori has 14 courses for all levels, from the legendary steep inclines and deep powder of the Expert and Skyview Courses, to the gently undulating Family Course. The Skyview Course in particular is one of the resort’s most famous, boasting a generous width of 250m, a 20º to 38º incline, and jaw-dropping views. The slopes include other features like tree runs, moguls, a terrain park, and a kids park with free rafting and tubing, and they are interconnected with neighbouring Hakuba Cortina Ski Resort.
Hakunori will be installing new ticket gates for the Hakuba Valley’s tap-and-go common access system, allowing riders to explore all of its eleven resorts with a single smart card; single-entry passes to Hakunori only will also be available.
Stay at the Hakuba Alps Hotel in Hakunori for ski-in, ski-out access to the slopes, and its amazing health spa.
