The most famous ski-resort in Japan and supposedly the largest, Happo One graces the eastern front of Mount Karamatsu and played host to several important events in the 1998 Winter Olympics. With absolutely breath-taking views of the Japanese Alps, a ski-area of 23000 metres, 23 lifts including a Gondola and as many as 13 trails, Happo One is truly an icy adventure of a lifetime. There is also a Happo Banks Snowpark for avid snowboarders. The resort is accessed by a 5 minute long fixed-route bus along the Sarukura Line from Hakuba town. A regular single day ticket should come for 5000 Yen.
