Stay at Wadano Gateway in Hakuba from just ¥7,600/night! The lodge is undergoing a full renovation for the 2018/19 season, and is centrally located in Wadano Village – just 100 metres from the famous Nagano Olympics sign. The property is a short walk from Happo Village and the Happo bus terminal, with frequent shuttles to gondolas and base stations for the Happo and Iwatake ski areas. Staying at Wadano Gateway offers you the freedom to mountain-hop, the ability to dine in or out as you please, and all of the amenities to help you fully unwind after a day on the mountain.

Hakuba itself needs very little introduction. It is Japan’s largest resort, a former Olympic venue and the location Asia’s first ever Freeride World Tour event. It is known for its phenomenal powder snow and challenging terrain (it has some of the steepest runs in the country), although its sheer size means there is truly something for everyone. Hakuba Valley lift ticket holders have access to the area’s 11 world-class ski resorts which, between them, offer more than 950 ha of terrain, 146 lifts and 200+ slopes.

Hakuba is also one of Japan’s most internationally recognisable ski resorts, thanks to its extensive resort services and infrastructure, world-class dining scene and relatively easy access from Tokyo.

*Offer valid for stays between Dec 15, 2018 to Mar 30, 2019. Booking confirmation required by September 31, 2017.
