Hakuba is a small village surrounded by the stunning mountains of the North Alps. It is arguably the most popular winter sports region in Honshu and is home to a number of snow resorts set against an impressive mountain backdrop. The resorts that feed into the Hakuba village area all have their own individual style, multi-resort and single resort lift passes are both available. Resorts within the Hakuba village area include: Happo-one, Iwatake, Tsugaike Kogen, Hakuba 47, Hakuba Goryu, Sun Alpina Hakuba Sanosaka, Minetaka, Norikura and Cortina. Close to Nagano, home of the 1998 Winter Olympics, Hakuba's Happo One hosted the men's downhill and super giant slalom as well as the ski jump and nordic combined events. Its high elevation and vertical rise make it the steepest of Japan's resorts.
