I’ve been coming to Habba for 12 years now, and it’s very disappointing to see the lack of or the unwillingness to upgrade their equipment, this year, they couldn’t even get their snow machines working Very little has changed since the Olympics in 1998. most of the time I’ve been staying at the Marillen and the staff there are very nice and I can’t fault them, but the owners spend no money on upgrading the facilities even though the majority of their guests are English-speaking they can’t even be bothered having English speaking. Networks available on their TVs, (they used to years ago) Many Australians are coming to Hakuba now( to many it’s quite crowded at times) and unfortunately some of the young ones especially show little or no respect for Japanese culture and walk around the streets drinking and leaving rubbish everywhere. Sometimes it makes me embarrassed to be Australian. I think it’s time to find a new ski area, it’s expensive to come here and spend a couple of weeks and you have to get some value for your money and if you don’t then we have to look elsewhere and that’s where I’m at at the moment.

This is our family's 1st snowboarding trip to Japan (or in an Asia country).

March 2023 was not a good time to go there for skiing, as Japan was unseasonably warm, and the snow was very slushy. The Japanese ski resorts didn't seem to groom their runs much, so there were lumpy slushy snow everywhere.

Another thing that surprised us was how small the ski resorts are. Happo one is their largest ski resort in Hakuba, but we still find it small compared to the ski resorts we usually go to in Colorado, as well as Lake Tahoe.

We also went to Goryu and 47, and Sanosaka. We went to Sanosake because we heard that they have the best groomed runs, but they only had two lifts, so, we did half a day there.

The village/town area of Happo one also disappointed a bit, as we find the town area of Happo one to be dated, and lacking in Japanese charm.

One thing we enjoyed in Hakuba area is the food. We love sushi and steaks. We ate really well during this trip.

There were also great lunch options on the mountains, and inexpensive compared to American ski resort food prices.

We love Japan, and will return again, but not to ski there anymore.

We skied three days on Happoone and really enjoyed it. Our experienced was definitely helped by the weather - crisp blue-sky days following a major dump of snow - but despite this, the mountain itself has a lot on offer.

As a family, we particularly enjoyed the fact that a number of pistes were wide enough to accommodate both a green, red and black run on the same slope, meaning we could ski together as a group, despite differing ability levels. We also found the areas around the Skyline 2 lift was quieter than the rest of the mountain, whilst offing a good variety of runs.

My only complaint is that many of the ski lifts are quite old and rickety and lacked things like foot rests and safety bars.

First time here after inly visiting Niseko. If you are looking fir very challenging slopes, then Happo One is the best in Japan. It feels very special skiing down the Downhill slope from top and you shall stop a higher mid right side abs only remember Hermann Maier crash in 1998. You can see that everybody on all slopes ski very well abs this is no room for any beginners at all. You feel like in the Alps with similar vegetation and stunning Mountain views. The downside is the chairlift and gondolas are 40+ year old abs there has been 0 investment in the facilities. Ski lift prices 20% cheaper vs Niseko.
Indeed will be back!

I really appreciated the fact that you can move easily by (free) shuttle bus from one resort to another one (about 10 differents ones) with the same lift pass. Happo-one & Iwatake (for the view) were top to me.

It is the most popular ski resort in the Hakuba Village. I like the ski resort very much. In Jan 2020, I ski here for 3 days, it is an amazing place. The course has from beginner to advance.

Great mountain; friendly service.
Good mountain for all levels of expertise.
Even though the quantity of snow was down from most years, the consistency was still like velvet!

Great resort! Lifts are spread out so to disperse crowds. Good snow pack with lots of elevation. Such great long runs.

This season was the worst but still decent runs on the top 2/3rds of the hill. Bottom section was closed but this is a rare season (ie never seen it like this before in 8yrs). Lots of variety of groomed runs particularly up higher with lifts in all directions off the gondy.

On a POW day, go up the gondy, then take the chair up to Pilar restaurant and there is plenty of freshies of the sides of the grommers for at least a few hours. Then you can go exploring elsewhere if you want.

Keep in mind this place shuts a lot of lifts quickly (incl the gondola) in even moderate wind, but you can get a quick shuttle to 47 or goryu which handles bad weather way better (although it is very busy if it’s both bad weather and a weekend).
