As some of you may know, last season there were discount coupon for variousHakuba resorts, you could get online.
These generally get you a discount on the lift ticket, plus a coupon for lunch, and maybe an onsen. You just have to print it out and take it along!!!!!

These can be found again this season here:

http://www.snownavi.com/

Click on the cut outs on the right, and then select the far left one.
The trouble is, it's in Japanese!!!!!

So, to save you the trouble here they are with a description in English(figure on the right is child's price):

Happo single person all day ticket (normally 4600yen) plus 1000yen for lunch, cost 4900yen.

Kashimayari single person all day ticket (normally 5000yen) plus 1000yen for meal, + onsen. Cost is 4000yen w/e, 3500yen week day. (green is week day, blue is w/e or holiday)

Sanosaka single person all day ticket (normally 4800yen) plus 1000yen for lunch, + 300 for soft drink, cost 4200yen.

Rental discounts:

I think stadium might be either shopping or lunch.
I think it's up to 5 people per coupon, but it might be best to have a coupon form each person.

Just print 'em out, and save!!!!!

Alas, the BEST value last year was Iwatake, but there doesn't seem to be a coupon this year

It was something like lift, lunch and onsen for 3800yen.

It would be good if they had a combined Norikura/Cortina coupon.
Lifts + lunch (pizza) and onsen

Yep that is the one you want.
Means the +1 could ride Norikura and I'll ride Cortina..then meet at the "shining hotel " for indulgent Pizza, Chlorine onsen combo.
Very nice sitting there (in the onsen) watching the home trail back to Cortina

Hey Sandy- cant seem to locate the vouchers on the snowavi website- can you (or anyone else who's worked it out) spell out the directions in a little more detail? Thanks!

Oh, and it keeps getting better- this from further down the translated page under the "Play experience discount coupon ticket section":

"It decorates in the person who experienced the way 1 beads"

Anyone care the explain what that means :)!

Sandy - what is the rental discount for?
1700 -> 1200 it appears but what for?

On the voucher, it says:

"Carving ski set" -> 1700yen
"Snowboard set" -> 1700yen

"Ski set" 1200yen
"Fun ski set" 1200yen

"U-E-A" which I would say means "Wear" = clothes. 1200yen.

It's for one day only, and no boots I think.
Normal prices at Spiceys seem to be:

"Carving ski set" 4000yen -> 1700yen.
"Snowboard" 3000yen -> 1700yen.
"Ski set" 3000 -> 1200yen
"Fun ski set" 2500 -> 1200yen

~~~~~~~~~~

The normal price for rental is not cheap, which is why I often suggest BUYING stuff in Tokyo!!!

e.g. Spicey's:
7 days high perf skis & poles 22,000yen.
7 days standard skis & poles 16,500yen.

I know Sandy - still having that discussion with +1 however.

Her concern is after travelling to get to Narita for so long then dragging the kids shopping and not arriving at Hakuba till about 8:30pm is recipe for disaster.

The coupon is for a glass shop. I didn't include that for a reason!!!!!

I'd say it's a glass bead necklace.

How much does lunch usually cost without the coupon? Our accomodation is offering us lift tickets for 4,200. Just trying to figure out which option to take and whether we want to be restricted to eating at the places listed on the coupon. Thanks in advance!

You can generally count on lunch costing between 800-1100yen for somthing substantial.

I assume the 4200yen is Happo?? I'd print some coupons and take them along. Then decide what looks good on the day.

If you're having lunch on the Sakka side you can't afford to be too fussy, just hope the old woman with the big Ramen pot is there.

Cool thanks for that.

The 4,200 gives us access to Happo, Goryu, 47, Iwatake and Tsugaike.

Yep, good idea.

I'm happy with a bowl of ramen for lunch!

Thanks for all this work Sandy.
The translation doesn't always work clearly.
Can you indicate whether any of these vouchers would be suitable for a family of 2 adults and 9yo + 13yo?
Would it be easier/better to use individual coupons. Can we each use one?
Also, just for interest - we are staying 8 days - one of which we will take to see the monkeys. Is there a multi-resort, multi day ticket, or should we buy just for the day depending on the weather. If the latter, what is the best way to know where the best skiing is for the day?
Thanks

Went to use one today at 47 and the Aussie girl behind the counter pointed out to me that I was better off getting a 1A + 1C pass at 5500 yen. That means the kids skiied the day for 700 yen each. 11,000 yen instead of 16,000 yen with these vouchers. We still had to buy lunch but all up that cost us 2000 yen so still well ahead.

That pass was available for "primary aged" kids - mine being 7 & 9 both qualified.

Should I make a comparison to the "deal" you could get in Australia to bring your kids skiing - no I think not.

Thanks Ian.
I don't want to waste time and effort trying to save a couple of bucks.
I also prefer the flexibility if deciding about lunch as we go. But if the saving was significant I might consider. There certainly is a difference in Australia weekly vs daily - but then you pay through the nose either way?

I found out today what this means, courtesy of a friendly bilingual cashier at the Sun Terrace Panorama restaurant. There's a missing comma as there is a discount voucher for a couple of public onsens in Happo village, plus a voucher for night skiing (night game) at the Nakiyama area. The Happo voucher is good value as it has a 200 yen discount on the full day lift ticket and a 900 yen lunch voucher.

I saved about $300 on lift tickets for the family on our recent trip to Hakuba (thanks sandy!). The lunches were great too (900 yen toward the cost of your lunch at Happo/700 yen at Hakuba 47). well worth the trouble

Hey sandy, never been to sun aplina but I assume from the vouchers only give you access to one of them?

Which is the best resort for more advanced skiing/trees?

Cheers, Printing the vouchers off as I type this

Sun Alpina is probably not worth it this year.

Sun Alpina is 3 interlinked resorts(Sanosaka, Aokiko & Kashimayari), and even the normal ticket for all there was something like 4400yen, which was reasonable value. And on Men's day (wed) and Lady's day (Fri) is was only 2100yen for all three.

HOWEVER, Aokiko is CLOSED, so Sanosaka & Kashimayari are no longer linked. I wouldn't bother with Sanosaka on its own even at 4200yen with 1000 for meal & 300 for drink. Kashimayari is reasonable value at 3500yen with 1000 for a meal on a week day though.... however, the bus only goes to Sanosaka from Hakuba.

Hopefully, Aokiko will get sorted out and we'll get all three back next year. Sun Alpina is not very challenging, but it's very, very nice and not crowded..... I always made it my practice to visit there once or twice a 7 day visit.
