Hakuba Norikura Onsen review by SnowKobe
This was the first time for a January visit at Norikura for a while. Had almost 100cm fall on us over the 5 days, and the hotel Alps was virtually empty midweek.

Snow was incredible-too much at times as visibility got tough at the top. Still a nice mix of groomed and ungroomed runs and tons of powder to make tracks on.

Saw a number for foreigners with backpacks heading off-piste

Hakuba Norikura Onsen review
Our annual trip was later than usual. First day was OK with 3 lifts going and access to about 4 runs. Lift tix priced at 2000/adult, 1500/kid. Snow was OK.

Wed morning only 2 lifts/2 runs open. Tix price down to 1000/adult or kid.

Snow OK in morning, but then rain started around noon. Turned to snow though and got 15cm that night.

Went back on Saturday for morning skiing.

Hardly anyone there

The hotel is getting older but still is a great deal for us after 10 years of going there.

Rooms have hotplates and fridges. Onsen in hotel overlooking slopes, plus small pools on a different floor (extra fee supposedly charged, but most don't pay I think).

Hotel ski lockers are 10m from slope.

Area itself is kid-friendly. Not as challenging as neighboring Cortina. Combined tix are a good way to cover a lot of ground.

Warmer (and less snow)
