Summary

Bluebird Chalets offers two types of luxury chalets packed with all the conveniences of a self contained chalet in central Hakuba, Japan's premier skiing destination. The comfortable chalets are equipped with everything you need in a home away from home. This includes a great kitchen, internet access, cable TV, and a state of the art entertainment system. Skiers might initially be put off by the fact the chalets aren’t really ski in, ski out, but don’t panic. Public transport to the slopes is easily accessible. To make things even better, Bluebird throws in a 4WD (SUV for you North Americans), giving you the freedom to rip up the countryside, and hit up whatever slopes you please. Unlike many of Hakuba’s hotels, they don’t have an on site onsen, though they throw in a few other nice luxuries like massage chairs. Also, those Dolce Gusto coffee machines are a blessing for coffee addicts.

Centrally located in the heart of Hakuba and a short stroll from a number of restaurants, cafes and bars in Echoland, Bluebird Chalets is the perfect choice for an idyllic snow holiday. They offer all the comforts of home and more, including on-demand TV, high-speed wireless internet, a fully-equipped kitchen and, to top it off, a brand-new premium Japanese massage chair to soothe away the aches and pains after a hard day on the slopes.

Hakuba is one of Japan's best regions for snow sports, and the chalets have the perfect location for a winter escape.

The well placed Hakuba chalets strive to inspire an ambiance of relaxation and wellbeing with a generous use of windows in the living areas to allow sunlight to stream in and flood the chalet with light. The open-plan living area is also characterized by an extensive use of timber, coupled with modern interior furnishings and heated wood flooring for ultimate comfort and style.

Offering unimpeded views of the surrounding forest and the Hakuba Ski Jumping Stadium that was used in the 1998 Winter Olympics, the chalets are also perfect for large groups as they are located right next to one another. The two self-contained accommodations combine to comfortably accommodate up to 16, making your special occasion an even more remarkable one.

Accommodation

Bluebird has two different types of chalet, the Kazahana and Sekka. Both come with a wide array of convinces, along with great locations in central Hakuba.

Kazahana

Sleeps: 8 | Bedrooms: 3 | Bathrooms: 2

Features: Massage chair, underfloor heating, large-screen TV, Wi-Fi

Completed in 2014, Kazahana Chalet was built with a purpose to the highest standards by Hakuba's premier builder, Fusion Homes. Located just off the main street of Echoland, you'll have easy access to the many restaurants of Echoland as well as the shuttles to all 9 resorts in the valley. 

The self-contained accommodation can sleep up to 8 people and features 3 western-style bedrooms, two bedrooms with your choice of a king bed or two twin beds, and one bedroom with two bunk beds.  Upstairs boasts a large open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area with a large-screen TV and a brand new top-of-the-line massage chair - something you'll seriously enjoy after a long hard day on the slopes.

As a family-run business, Bluebird's aim is to make your holiday personalized. Their services include regular linen and towel changes, daily rubbish removal and light cleaning. They can also arrange for shuttle services to the various resorts, trips to the supermarkets, ski rentals, lift passes, ski lessons, restaurant bookings and assistance with any other general inquiries.

Surf & Other Activities

Getting an average annual snowfall of 11 metres of snow, Hakuba Valley has some of the highest snowfall levels in Japan, making it one of the country's premier ski destinations. And with such an expansive terrain, there's a seemingly endless number of slopes for you to carve tracks into - you can explore somewhere new in the valley every day. However, Hakuba isn't just about skiing.

Whilst many people picture Hakuba as primarily a ski resort town, it also has so much to offer in the summer too. As the seasons change and the snow melts off the picturesque mountains, what were once countless ski runs become an infinite network of hiking walkways and mountain biking trails. The beauty of Hakuba evolves as white turns to green - the flora and fauna shake off the snow and burst into life again.

There are an almost infinite number of trails, walkways and paths for hikers and mountain bikers. You can mountain bike past scenic mountains, lakes, and through the quaint villages of rural Japan. Mountain bike tours are available through the Evergreen Outdoor Center.

On many summer days you can look up to the sky and see a number of paragliders - what better way to see the Alps!
