Hakuba December Snow Report

Hakuba December Snow Report

It’s been a slow start to the season in Hakuba. But thanks to a mid-December dump things are looking up in Hakuba.

Kiyomi your Hakuba World Snowfaris specialist has reported a small amount of snow falling over mid-December followed by a bigger dump on the 15th and 16th (about 50cm). As a result, there are a number of lifts open and we’re excited to report that Hakuba47 park is up and running too - if you booked in for December and you were starting to worry, relax. You’ll be hitting the slopes and have plenty of runs to tackle.

The following resorts have opened their chairs and lifts;

  • Hakuba Cortina Snow Resort
  • Tsugaike Kogen Snow Resort 
  • ABLE Hakuba Goryu Snow Resort 
  • Kashimayari Snow Resort

Hakuba Snow Fun Fact:

One of 2 elementary schools in Hakuba has a ski slope with a chairlift and a ski jump in their backyard, and a cross-country course in their playground.
The kids at the other school learn Alpen skiing, ski jumps and cross-country skiing. That's why there are many Olympians from Hakuba!

With the first real snow event opening up the season we’re starting to get really excited. Wishing you locked in your ski trip for this year? Make sure you don’t sit out the 2019/20 season.
