Cortina Ski Resort
Cortina has a well earned reputation as the powder capital of Hakuba, both for the huge amounts of snow it gets (14 mtrs/yr) and also for allowing punters to ride pretty much whereever they like on the mountain. The tree runs are incredible, they are steep (42c), deep and the trees are well spaced. To enter these ares you need to be at least a strong intermediate and you should wear a helmet. Besides the famous tree runs, there are also many good intermediate runs and a beginners section at the bottom. The hotel at the bottom must be the most photographed hotel in Japan it is so pretty.
