Big Bear Cortina is a full-service boutique hotel for intrepid skiers who want to stay in comfort, right where the powder snow is deepest and falls most frequently.

Our location is virtually ski-in / ski-out to the well-known Cortina Kokusai resort which is located approximately 12kms north of the Hakuba township and offers instant access to some of the best back-country and lift-accessed tree-skiing Japan has to offer. Under-floor heating, spacious rooms with ensuites, a cosy bar/restaurant, media room and a private bath - all offering panoramic views of the Japanese Alps - ensure you have everything you need to relax after a day on the mountain. A full western breakfast is included and in the evening you can choose to eat with us, or let us take you to the restaurant of your choice, anywhere in the Hakuba valley!

With a limited capacity of 25 guests, Big Bear Cortina is also ideal for large groups looking for quality accommodation complemented by bespoke service.
