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.
Date visited: From 04 January, 2010 To 09 January, 2010
Snow condition on visit: Excellent
Things I liked: Nobody there
Things I didn't like: Visibility tough at times
