STEEP AND DEEP!
Hakuba boasts the steepest runs of Japan’s 600 ski resorts. Hakuba is home to seven resorts, which encircle the massive Olympic Ski Jump Stadium. Many events of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, including the downhill skiing, were held on the slopes in Hakuba. Consistent powder snow on many challenging runs at Hakuba make this region a high priority destination for serious ski travelers in Japan. The distinct small village atmosphere of this resort town is another major drawcard. Growing popularity among skiers and snowboarders around the world is testament to its charm.
