Hakuba’s oldest, largest and most central ski hill. Happo offers riders a leg-burning thousand meters of top to bottom skiing with stunning views of Hakuba’s three symbolic peaks. Host to the men’s and women’s blue ribbon downhill and super giant slalom events at the 1998 Nagano Olympics, Happo-one is the one hill not to miss in Hakuba.

Beginners should head out to the Sakka area where the gentle slopes will get you linking turns in no time at all. There is the Sakka Kids Park area with a magic carpet for skiing and tobogganing.
A favorite is the Panorama slope just below the top of the gondola. It’s wide and well groomed with three lifts to keep you moving. . The easiest advice to lower intermediates is to not go higher than the gondola.
Try your hand at the 1998 Winter Olympic men’s and ladies downhill courses. The Olympians finished in about two minutes. See how long it takes you. Powder Hounds first come, first served! The upper part of Happo is mostly ungroomed, so get yourself on the gondola when it opens.
