If you want to Ski Japan then Elk at Hakuba Ski lodge is a very smart move. Elk at Hakuba accommodation is centrally located right in the middle of Echoland - the heart and soul of Hakuba. Echoland is where all the action takes place - home to the majority of the restaurants, bars and shops - and only a short stroll of 400 metres down the road.
Elk at Habuka is right between Happo-One and Hakuba 47 ski resorts and surrounded by the Misorano area of smaller hotels and accommodation. There is a shuttle stop just outside which takes you to all the ski resorts in Hakuba. Hakuba has such good snow and facilities that it played host to the top events during the 1998 winter Olympics.
