Hakuba Powder Weekend (Cortina & Tsugaike)

Next Trip: No trips currently scheduled


Tsugaike Kogen Ski Resort is a large scale resort with slopes for all levels and our ski-in ski-out hotel is right in front of the lifts! The slopes directly in front of our hotel are incredibly wide and spacious making this are perfect for learning to ski/board without having to worry about getting in the way of other skiiers. The resort also features a super long gondola, two hit park areas, a hike up back country area and more.

Cortina is a favourite among Hakuba locals, as it receives the most snowfall of the Hakuba resorts and consistently sports the best powder snow in the region. Cortina has loads of specially sectioned off back country and tree run areas that are great fun for the more adventurous skier/boarder. The lower slopes are wide open and perfect for beginners. There's also a great build your own pizza restaurant at the base. Looking forward to a fun weekend in the snow!
