It's been a slower December than usual across Japan in terms of snowfall, but there have been plenty of moments worth capturing. While we haven't seen consistent snowfall to have all lifts running in Hakuba, the upper mountain has seen some cracking powder days.
Hakuba is not only known for its snowfall, Hakuba's après atmosphere is also one of its main draw cards and we've seen that in full swing in December with Christmas celebrations.
Check out what Hakuba has delivered in December through the eyes of our photographer. It's set to get a whole lot better too with Mountainwatch's meteorologist The Grasshopper calling for above average snowfalls through January and February. It's not too late to plan a Hakuba ski trip this season. We have some great last minute deals available starting from only $994.
