Hakuba Norikura

Hakuba Norikura is linked to its neighboring resort, Hakuba Cortina, which can be ridden using the same pass if you buy the combined resort ticket. We think this is a must as it doubles the terrain that you can enjoy. Make sure you ask for the combined ticket when purchasing.

Beginners

A number of shorter lifts are also aligned along the wide foothills.  There’s a great choice for beginners and those who may not have ridden fresh soft snow before.

Intermediates

Hakuba Norikura is a weekend warrior kind of place, thus making the combination of lots of space, lots of snow, and the lack of crowds that can be found at the larger resorts providing a great stage for building up confidence.

Advanced

Hakuba Norikura shares Cortina’s mighty snowfall and extends for a very respectable 600 meters of vertical up the ridge it shares with Cortina.

Power hounds should head skiers left of the resort to the Alps 10 Pair Chairlift, from the top lap up the powder the hour before Hakuba Cortina opens.

Night Skiing

Hakuba Cortina offers night skiing every evening until 10pm on the run above the Hotel Green Plaza

Hakuba Norikura has a good sized park for freestlyers and shred fashioners to strut their stuff. The park’s number one feature is the half pipe, which can get a little corwded and very colorful on the weekends.

Many visitors to Hakuba do not give Norikura much of a thought, but we think it could be the valley’s most underrated resort. When combined with Cortina, it certainly offers a lot of different options.sanosakadata
