What’s the weather like?

Winter in Hakuba is cold, but snow conditions are some of the best in the world. Mountain temperatures in winter are in the range of -5ºC and -13ºC, whereas in the village it will be -3º to -5ºC. You can expect fresh powder at least once a week during most of the season, but weather is generally mild by alpine terms.

Yusuke is a very experienced guide, he was prompt about what time we agreed upon starting the day very professional. although the conditions for that day were not the best . Yusuke made sure that we got the most out of the day. after we found good snow. we decided to call the day a little early, and Yusuke took us to check a few beautiful sites in Hakuba with Yusuke giving us the history of the sites. he took us to a great onset. and after that we had a nice farewell dinner with him. Yusuke is very easy going and knows the mountain , felt very safe with him will definitely rebook with him next year. I highly recommend Yusuke for any one thinking about a guided tour. Ed & Iris

I just wanted to say that Kenichi-san was a fantastic guide and a really good man. We loved our time with him and got to ski much more powder snow than if we had been by ourselves. I highly recommend him as a guide.
