Overview 


Location

Hakuba Norikura Onsen is located at the northern end of the Hakuba Valley, strictly speaking, in the Otari district, not in Hakuba. (Otari includes Tsugaike Kogen, Norikura Onsen and Cortina Kokusai resorts, from south to north)

Norikura is located between Tsugaike Kogen and Cortina Kokusai resorts. It's actually linked to Cortina, and a dual lift ticket can be obtained for an extra 500 yen.

Norikura is regarded as the "poor cousin" of Cortina, to which hoards of (Aussie) powder hounds flock on a powder day, without getting the dual resort ticket. On a due northerly wind, Cortina is the first high ground to be hit by snow bearing clouds, so in these circumstances, Cortina can get 40-50cm, when Happo only gets 10cm. Norikura located just to the south, gets some of this snow. On this sort of day, along the ridge bordering Cortina, Norikura can get 35-45cm, while at the southern end, it might get 25-30cm.(but still more than Happo)

The "poor cousin" tag is due to the relatively short runs, and the belief that Cortina is the be all and end all of powder. There's no doubt Cortina is steep and deep, but it is also often tracked out by 10am. If you know how and where to find powder, you can still be making tracks at Norikura at 3pm.
