The Big Bear Chalets are modern and spacious chalets providing all the comfort needed for a memorable experience, including very well-equipped kitchens, international cable TV, wireless internet and large, multi-person baths designed to simulate the Japanese 'hot spring' experience.

All rooms are individually heated, and, with triple-glazing and solid Japanese cedar construction, the houses are very well-insulated against both the cold and the heat. The houses are located right in the center of the Hakuba valley's premium area, "Wadanomori", a densely-forested enclave nestled at the base of the Happo-one ski resort and home to all the best hotels, hot springs, bars and restaurants.

The location is a 1 minute walk from Evergreen, Hakuba's leading outdoor activities center, specializing in providing bilingual instruction, guiding services and a variety of outdoor activities during both the winter and summer seasons, as well as childcare facilities.

Big Bear Apartments - a boutique selection of studio, one and two bedroom apartments. Offering compact and affordable self-contained facilities for 2-4 guests, the Big Bear Apartments are finished to a high standard and are virtually 'ski-in/ski-out', located right at the base of the Happo-one Resort's Sakka ski slopes. All apartments feature custom bathrooms, kitchens and small, under-cover terraces.
