HAKUBA IWATAKE MTB PARK GUIDE

  • HAKUBA IWATAKE, MTB Mecca in Peaceful Forest

    In 1990s, there were 2 big moutain biking races held in Hakuba Iwatake, "Haru Iwa" and "Aki Iwa". They were known as the biggest MTB events in Japan at that time and over 1,000 mountain bikers participated, even including top riders not only from Japan, but also from overseas. Besides, a lot of MTB brands advanced improvement and development of their products toward these competitions. The best thing about Hakuba Iwatake was 3,672-meter long Downhill Course which had the elevation gap of 521 meters from the summit (1,272m). Besides, there were also Dual Slalom and Cross Country courses. Although the MTB courses were suddenly closed in the late 90s, Hakuba Iwatake, a long-awaited MTB mecca, has come back again in 2015!!
