When do the lifts open in Hakuba?

With over 100 lifts in the valley, you are bound to find one to yourself.

When does the snow season start in Hakuba? Answer is, as soon as there is enough snow on the ground. As the storms start rolling in during November, we all wait here with anticipation for the lifts to start turning.
