Norikura ski resort

Cortina’s little sister

Hakuba Norikura is a medium sized resort that is often overlooked by foreign visitors due to the popularity of adjoining Cortina (you can go to both on the same ticket). It may not have the tree runs that Cortina does, but it has some great powder runs neveretheless, and is a lot less busy than Cortina.
MOUNTAIN STATISTICS Gondola Lifts 9 1 day pass 4000-4800 Highest point 1320 mtrs Vertical drop 600 mtrs Longest course 2,500nmtrs Steepest run 38 c Terrain park Night skiing Kiddies area Daycare
The resort in detail First of all, if you don’t have the Hakuba Valley pass make sure you get the joint Norikura/Cortina ( 4,800) pass so you can access both resorts. Beginners will want to head to the Hakunori course at the far bottom left of the resort though most of the runs tend to be fairly flat at the bottom.Best pow is to be had at the Skyview course on the far lookers right accessible by the no. 10 pair lift (which is the lift you want to catch if you want to head to Cortina). In between these 2 areas there are a myriad of intermediate courses that will challenge most.
Facilities There is a free kids area at the bottom of the main slope outside the Alps Hotel. There is no terrain park as such but there is a series of rolling jumps alongside pair lift no. 5 suitable for park beginners. There are plenty of places to eat lunch at the bottom of the slopes with a typical lunch menu for about 1,000. There is a nice onsen inside the Alps hotel with both an inside and outside bath ( 800).
