Pat and Val

The Hakuba Valley, Honshu, Japan

February 10-19 will have us skiing in the famous Hakuba Valley in Japan. Hakuba consists of 10 different ski resorts located through the valley. Hakuba Valley has long been Japan’s premier destination for skiers. After achieving world recognition for hosting the 1998 Winter Olympic Games, it has fast become a world-­class resort destination. Hakuba’s ski season runs from early December to early May each winter, receiving on average an astonishing 45 feet of snowfall.

Winter in Hakuba means opportunities to enjoy an incredible array of winter sports against the backdrop of the spectacularly beautiful Northern Japan Alps. In addition to skiing you can enjoy Nordic skiing, snow hiking,snow rafting, heli skiing, cat skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing.

Thanks to its dry climate and exceptional powder snow, Hakuba provides an unparalleled winter vacation experience. With one lift pass you can enjoy skiing at 10 different ski resorts including Jiigatake, Kashimayari Sports Village, Hakuba Sanosaka, Hakuba Goryu, Hakuba 47, Hakuba Happo One, Hakuba Iwatake, Tsugaike Kogen, Hakuba Norikura and Hakuba Cortina. You will find over 200 different ski runs offering a wonderful variety of low intermediate to expert groomed and off piste skiing as well as some of Japan’s most challenging terrain and longest vertical skiing.

This trip to Japan is unique. It’s tailored for people seeking new adventures, who love to soak up new cultures, great food, skiing, and of course, love meeting new people along the way. You will have the experience of a lifetime.

Please call for rates for other departure locations or to modify this tour to meet your needs. If you do not have a traveling partner, you can travel solo, or if you wish to share a room we will help place you with another person from the group.
