Visitor Reviews of Happo One

Dr Gordon Caldwell from United Kingdom writes:

We came to Hakuba for 5 days, wish we had booked 10! Very lucky with loads of snow for December. Here for Xmas, fresh powder, no queues, fabulous cheap food at lift bases. Runs for all levels of skiers. Easy shuttles to adjacent areas like Hakuba 47, Goryu, Cortina (best to plan a day in each rather than switch midday). Only criticism is buses from Echoland to lifts should be more frequent. Transfer by bus from Tokyo Shinjuki express bus terminal is a doddle. Happo information centre staff very helpful. Japanese people so genuinely welcoming. Scenery stunning. Why didn't we come to Japan years ago?
