Hakuba Cortina review
Great resort with good variety in terrain and alot of steep runs. Uncrowded even on the weekends.

The hotel was good and they have some really good package deals. Only wish they would open up more of the off-piste stuff -- so much potential, but you gotta break the law to get the good stuff.

Seems like pow-pow tree runs are a drug in the Hakuba area and the patrol are the cops.
Date visited: From January, 2004
Snow condition on visit: 50cm of fresh in the morn
Things I liked: Great terrain, good steeps, uncrowded, cheap ticket
Things I didn't like: Too many ropes, patrol on a witch hunt for free riders
