Hi, Alpico bus going through the Happo bus terminal (until November 30)

On October 6, 7 and 8, there is a bus in the summer timetable(夏ダイヤ).

The other day in October is the spring and autumn schedule(春秋ダイヤ).

www.alpico.co.jp/access/hakuba/tsugaike/

◆ sign = JR "Moonlight Shinshu" Driving on the day it arrives at Hakuba station

◇ Mark = Driving on days other than ◆

白馬駅=Hakuba-eki, Hakuba station 

白馬八方BT=Hakuba happo bus terminal

10 minutes on foot from the Happo Bus Terminal to the Gondola "Adam" Pier.

The Alpine Line (Adam, Alpine Quad Lift, Ground Quad Lift) is operated until 28th October. Adam starts at 8 o'clock. (Depending on the weather, there is a possibility of change.) Probably, if it is a while before, English information will be posted as well.

All the Hakuba-One gondola and lifts operate unless in severe weather conditions as mentioned.

It'd take about 20min from the Hakuba bus terminal to the gondola station which is slightly uphill.

Consider also Hakuba Tsugaike Kogen whose koyo would be stunning in early Oct.

my last visit in 2014.
