Ski & Snowboard

One of the dreams of many ski enthusiasts is to ski Japan and Hakuba is one of the most loved skiing destinations. Is this because there are 10 world class Hakuba ski resorts to choose from with over 200 groomed runs and back country touring all available on one lift pass?

Either way it’s clear that Hakuba is a winter wonderland. A ski lover’s paradise. You will be in the prime position to enjoy the ski holiday of a lifetime and experience the best that an authentic Japan holiday has to offer. Whether that be skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and other local tourist attractions to round out your cultural skiing holiday in Hakuba, Japan. It’s all on your doorstep when you stay at Elk at Hakuba.


Super cosy!

"A great western style cosy place! Great service with a very friendly vibe. Hot bacon and eggs breakfast every morning and they will even give you a lift to the ski fields when they are not busy. Thanks Team!"

Great place, great location, great food and friendly staff

"This was our 4th trip to Japan and our first time at Elk. It is situated near several restaurants and Echoland. The bus stops to the ski resorts are close. Justina and her staff are good fun and happy to go out of their way to help with local knowledge or with a lift to the rental shop, other ski resorts or the supermarket. The cooked breakfast is a great start to the day. The fruit bowl is kept topped up for a healthy fruit snack. The lounge is nice and warm at night with the fire going. There are games for the kids to play and there are usually other children to keep your kids company."

Ski holiday

"We had the time of our lives spending Christmas and New Years at the Elk. We found everything that we expected and more. We couldn't fault value for money - the rooms were very comfortable, we were close to free bus shuttles that took us to all the mountains in Hakuba Valley, a five minute walk to a host of great restaurants and a host/manager that went out of her way to ensure that we had a great time. I have recommended the Elk to a number of my friends who will be visiting this coming season."

Suits everbody

"Staying at Elk is like staying with relatives. The staff go out of their way to make everybody feel welcome - even extending to going out on the town, to local events, and driving you to your whatever each day (ski resort, board hire, doctor's appointment, onsen etc). It's certainly not 5 star and doesn't pretend to be, but if you've ever stayed in an on-mountain ski lodge, this really is comfortable."
