Accommodation – The Hakuba Company – Mountainside

Another great offering for self-contained accommodation in the Hakuba valley, Mountainside is best suited for guests looking for ski-in/ski out accommodation, as well a those looking for something a little more ‘hands on’ than true self contained. With a staffed front desk during the day, and ‘Luce’ – a well appointed restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner on the ground floor – guests can enjoy the privacy of an apartment, but with the connivence of these amenities. Situated at the foot of Happo One and in the Wadano area, Mountainside`s newly finished apartments are within walking distance to a selection of restaurants, Onsens and an excellent rental shop – Rhythm. As it`s point of difference, the Kokusai pair chairlift is a meter 20 steps away, and Happo-One`s beginner slopes of Sakka are within 500 meters.
