About Hakuba Weather

Hakuba Valley ski resorts are located in the impressive mountain range known as the Japanese Alps in northwest Nagano prefecture, about 280km from Tokyo and about an hour south of the town of Itoigawa on the Japan Sea. The location and elevation of Hakuba Valley offer the perfect combination for incredible snowfall. Cold wind blowing in from Siberia collects water as it travels across the Sea of Japan, falling down as snowfall when it hits the Japan Alps. This special weather effect is known as the Japan ocean effect, and we have it to thank for Hakuba’s abundant light, dry powder snow.

Hakuba Snow Season

In Hakuba you can expect hot and humid summers, pleasantly warm and mild off-seasons, and, during the snow season, perfectly cool winters with an amount of precipitation to rival some of the best ski resorts in the world.

The Hakuba snow season usually gets well underway by about mid-December, with average monthly snowfall peaking in January and continuing heavily until mid-March when temperatures start to warm. Hakuba typically still sees new snowfall in April and often some of the higher lifts remain open as late as May, offering a unique chance for spring skiing and cherry blossoms!
