In order to ensure our guests enjoy a full range of choices, we will provide a morning shuttle to the Happo-One Resort, stopping at the Tsugaike and Iwatake Resorts along the way, followed by a return pick-up service from each of those resorts in the afternoon. For those looking to enjoy Hakuba's many great restaurants, take advantage of our 'apres ski' direct shuttle to the Hakuba/Happo area and our 'after dinner' return service.
More floor plans and photos will be available as the winter approached, but reservations are now being accepted, with Early Bird Specials for reservations confirmed before September 2015. Why not combine a stay at one of our existing Big Bear properties with a stay at Big Bear Cortina to fully experience all the skiing that Hakuba has to offer?

Comments from accommodation

Brand new for the 2015/16 season will be 'Big Bear Cortina', a full-service lodge for those who want to stay right where the powder snow is deepest and falls most frequently.

Our location is virtually ski-in / ski-out to both the well-known Cortina and Norikura resorts, located approximately 15 kms north of the Hakuba township, offering instant access to some of the best tree and back-country skiing Japan has to offer. Spacious rooms with ensuites, a cosy bar/restaurant and a private Jacuzzi, all offering panoramic views of the Japanese Alps will ensure our guests have everything they need to relax after a day on the mountain. A full breakfast is included, but in the evening guests can choose to eat with us or take advantage of our complimentary restaurant shuttle.

With a limited capacity of approximately 20 guests, Big Bear Cortina is ideal for large groups looking for quality accommodation complemented by bespoke service.
