Haboro Townspeople Ski Resort is very memorable to me as it is the first place that I experienced skiing. It has also witnessed me stumble and fall countless times during that ski trip.

羽幌町民スキー場びゅー

I visited and skied at Haboro Townspeople Ski Resort last February 4, 2022which was my 95th day here in Japan as an ALT under the JET Programme. I was honored to be given the opportunity to join Tomamae Commercial High School for its annual ski trip. Well, speaking of which, I would like to thank my JTE Hasegawa-sensei for inviting me to be part of the said trip and for also patiently teaching me the basics of skiing. 


It's very beautiful on top of the hill

Thank you so much Hasegawa-sensei for being my first ski teacher

What I liked about the Haboro Townspeople Ski Resort, aside from the pair lift rides was the view from the upper parts of the hill. You would be able to see a scenic view of the vast snow-covered landscape below and the Sea of Japan in the distance.

Before I forget, aside from skiing, you should also try the food at the ski lodge. it's very affordable and delicious.

Why visit Haboro Townspeople Ski Resort?

If you are fond of skiing and you found yourself in Rumoi Subprefecture from the months of December until March then you better visit this place. It's not as crowded as most popular ski resorts in the region plus it is very affordable. However, if you have zero experience skiing, I don't particularly recommend this place unless you are with a very knowledgeable skier.

  1. Interesting. When I head skiing in Hokkaido, I alway think of Niseko. I`m surprised that there are more skiing places to try out.

  2. How come when I look at the picture from the foot of the ski resort it looks easy to do but when I saw the picture from the peak it seems like it's too high.

    1. We have the same thing in mind. Maybe it's just the angle of the shot.
