Of all the resorts in the Hakuba Valley Iwatake has the best panoramic views. Backside and front side skiing offers spectacular views of the valley, alps and Happo One.
Hakuba Iwatake is generally an intermediate level hill. It has the the lowest top elevation in the valley and is the first to be impacted by warm weather.
For those willing to search for interesting runs though Iwatake does offer some of the most varied terrain of all the resorts in the valley. Interesting features can be found on the north and back-side of the resort. Iwatake is also generally less busy during peak times and powder can often still be found after lunch.
Iwatake base and the traditional Japanese area of Shinden offer those looking for a quieter more traditional Japanese accommodation an excellent experience. Geographically Iwatake is the center of the Hakuba Valley meaning less travel time to resorts both North and South.
