Visitor Reviews of Hakuba Norikura

Dr Gordon Caldwell from United Kingdom writes:

We skied Norikura in the same day as Cortina on an amazing value lift pass of 4500 Yen. It was a clear blue ski day with stunning views of the Japanese Alps and the Hakuba valley. It's difficult to think of more beautiful scenery for skiing in. There is a huge area at the base, for beginners, with several runs to move on up to. One large open unpisted area at the top for powder hounds. Some tree skiing. Very easy access into Cortina which has one long run suitable for anyone who has skied 3 days. Cortina has vast areas of advanced skiing, best done straight after a dump. We ate in a big restaurant in Norikura, and like all eating in this area, easy ordering, unbelievably quick service, delicious food and not expensive (pork, rice, beer about 1400 Yen, in and out in under 30 minutes). Why ski anywhere else than Japan?
