Accommodation Info

Hokkaido Explorer Tour
There are two options for Yubari accommodation.

Hotel Mount Racey is located at the base of the Yubari Ski Resort and right opposite the Yubari train station. The hotel claims it’s ski-in ski-out but it’s not quite as there is a river between the hotel and the ski area, and the two are inter-connected via a covered bridge. Hotel Mount Racey is a very nice hotel but it’s rather expensive and there are some parts of it where you’d feel like you’re getting value for money, and other parts where you’re left wondering.

The Hotel Mount Racey is a resort hotel with mostly western rooms, suites and a few Japanese rooms. The hotel has a buffet restaurant for breakfast and dinner, which includes opportunities to savour Hokkaido’s famous crab meat. Hotel Mount Racey has ski storage, ski rentals, free parking, and an indoor and outdoor hot spring. You can look at rates and availability for the Hotel Mount Racey here, but don’t be surprised if it appears unavailable because they don’t seem too motivated to want English speaking guests!

The Yubari Hotel Shuparo is located in the town of Yubari, about a 15-20 minute walk away from the ski resort. You can store your ski and snowboards near the gondola to save lugging them back to the hotel. There are free shuttle buses between the hotel and slopes but they only operate for specific hours of the day, so the Shuparo Hotel is an ideal place to save some money if you have a car. There are a couple of little eateries nearby, so this is another advantage of staying in town. The Yubari Hotel Shuparo has 153 western style guest rooms; some of which are a little on the pokey side.

The hotel has 2 restaurants for dinner; one with set menus and the other with buffet meals in a slightly glamorous ballroom of yesteryear. Breakfast consists of a decent buffet of palatable Japanese fare and some western type items. The hotel has an indoor onsen that’s great for a soak after skiing or snowboarding, but it’s not particularly aesthetically pleasing. The hotel has a few front desk staff that speak a little English.
