Hakuba, in the Japanese Alps near Nagano, is a valley with a large number of ski resorts. Each Hakuba ski resort alone may not offer a huge amount of terrain variety, but it’s the combination of the different Hakuba ski areas and villages that makes the valley pretty special.
The Hakuba Valley area incorporates 11 ski resorts that combined, offer expansive terrain. The Hakuba ski resorts aren’t interconnected via the slopes (except for Hakuba 47 and Goryu, and Cortina and Norikura), but 9 of the ski areas can be accessed off a common lift ticket and there are shuttle buses to get around.
The alpine scenery of the Hakuba Valley is amazing with rugged towering peaks over 3,000 m.
