The Hakuba Valley offers a huge amount of terrain for powder enthusiasts. With 10 mountains in the range you can continually be exploring new terrain and powder pockets. For those staying longer term this presents an obstacle: what season pass should I buy? Sure, buying a Happo or Hakuba 47 pass give you access to the biggest resorts and some great terrain but these passes come at a cost and you’ll be missing out on some of Hakuba’s best keep secrets.
In 2015 The Hakuba Valley has released a valley wide all mountain pass that covers the 10 mountains in the range. At JPY130,000 the price of the pass is expensive. The best value season pass for the Hakuba Valley has to be the JTB pass. As well as covering 6 mountains here in Hakuba (Cortina, Norikura, Tsugaike, Iwatake, Sanosaka, Kashimayari) you get access to a total of over 30 through-out Japan. And at JPY54,000 that is great value for anyone staying longer term.
Our friends at Hakuba Assist can help you purchase a JTB pass for the coming 2015/2016 winter.
