Happo One is the king of all ski resorts in Hakuba. No less than 5 events were held there including the ski jump and downhill ski events. It has one of the highest vertical drops in Japan-about 1,000 metres and has incredible views from the top of the grand Northern Japan Alps. For the demanding skier or boarder it has everything-steep runs, ungroomed powder terrain and a great terrain park. Beginners are also not left out but really it is more suited to intermediate or advanced riders. It also has a lot more lifts than it needs as a result of the bubble era, and hence except for holiday periods you rarely have to wait in queues.
