"All Mountain" Lift Tickets

All mountain lift tickets can be used at 8 of the resorts in the Hakuba Valley. Available from 2 to 7 days, they include 1-2 rest days. i.e. a 5 day ticket is valid over a 7 day period.

Customers are issued a series of vouchers that are presented at the lift counter office of the resort they wish to ski at that day. Resorts with IC chip style lift tickets require a 1,000yen deposit on the chip, which is refundable at the end of the day.

The tickets are only for short term inbound tourists, not for residences or nations of Japan. The program was mainly set up to allow overseas agents to package lift tickets into their guests travel itineraries. Smaller resorts may offer a lunch deal with the day ticket.
