Located at the Southern end of the Hakuba Valley, Hakuba Sanosaka is often over looked by by international visitors due to the small size and accessbility issues.

But for those who do make the trip down here are in for a great days skiing, with som picture pefect views looking down over Lake Aokiko.

Sanosaka do operate a limited number of free shuttle buses from central Hakuba. Look out for the reindeer bus and you know you are heading in the right direction.

There is a great base area, which serves good meals at a resonable price.

The lift ticket counter is on the lift side of the base center.

Above tee base center is a SAJ certified mogul course, which has seen some of the wold's top freestylers, but most people will want to jump straight on the quad lift and get to the far reaches of the resort as early as possible.

The southern most slope had the best views, and y can dive in and out of he trees without a problem, but there are a few places where you will get stuck and have to hike back out to the main slope.

The resort is generally quiet during the week, and queues for the lifts are unheard of.
