Yes, they do. Please check them out here, and please be aware that other sites using "hakuba" and "tourism" in their name are privately owned tour operators and booking sites not run by the government of japan.
Hakuba means "white horse". One of the mountains in the valley reveals a white horse when just enough snow has melted in spring to signal the time to plant rice in the valley below.
We are a 10 minute walk to Goryu’s Escal Plaza (main station and ticket booth). You can ride/ski back when the roads are covered in snow.
Yes, there are also some shuttles to Iimori, Hakuba 47 and Happo. Minekami and Sun Alpina provide a free door-to-door pick-up service. We are also providing Fresh Tracks Tours.

Tracks serves great pizza, burgers, nachos, and lasagna. Pizzakaya does Pizza, pasta and more, The Canadian Village bar, Canada Tei, and Jankepon are Japanese izakayas that serve heaps of small dishes of Japanese food and drinks. Ariba Ariba is a cozy cafe with Mexican food. The Aqua Alpine Hotel's Bradbury's has great happy hour specials and a large dining room with fireplace. You can easily walk to all of these places but there are plenty more restaurants a short drive or Genki Shuttle shuttle bus trip away.

Pizzakaya is a cozy bar popular with the locals all year round. Sauce has a fuseball table, darts board, nice people and great deco. The Canadian Village bar, Canada Tei is cozy izakaya (Japanese style bar) with teppanyaki and a very friendly English speaking owner. Jankenpon is another izakaya with some great nabe (shared hotpot) and fried chicken. There are more bars and clubs you can get to by car, taxi, or shuttle bus.
On foot, by taxi, by car, by train, or the Genki Bus.
Heaps! We’ve been here for years!
Even more, we have been all over the country and have lots of photos and travel advice to share.
Yes, but Hakuba 47 has the biggest one in Hakuba and the resorts are connected at the top. One pass lets you ride at both places. There is another park at Iimori you can use with your Goryu/47 pass.
There is one bank near Hakuba station that will change your money, but it is best to do all of your banking in Tokyo. In Hakuba, you can withdraw money at 7/11 ATM and the local post office. The post office is only open during business hours and closed during all holidays.
