Is this our favourite ski chalet in all Japan? Undoubtedly.

Polished western red cedar, black and stainless steel dominate the interior of Phoenix One – the slickest in the valley. Located within Wadano forest, 10 minutes from the ski lifts, Phoenix One sleeps 10 in three kings and one room with two sets of bunk beds – ideal for children and teenagers. No expense has been spared, from the high-spec Miele kitchen and Bang & Olufsen audio and visual systems to the foosball table and PlayStation. Luxurious perks are everywhere: warm your boots on the automated boot warmer before hitting the slopes, or stay in and work out in the well-stocked private gym before pampering yourself in the sauna and Japanese style onsen.

Architecturally, this residence follows a clear credence of open plan living and entertaining. The front of the house is constructed entirely of glass, the expansive windows acting as a frame for the forest in front.

Shuttle buses heading to Happo, Goryu and Iimori stop just five minutes from Phoenix, and a seven-seater van is also provided should you prefer to drive. If you need anything (and we doubt you will), your hosts are on-hand via intercom.

In Wadano - an eight minute walk to Happo One main gondola, and just one minute walk to restaurants/bars. A main advantage is the use of a 4x4 vehicle that gives you the freedom to explore the other resorts in the valley - drivers must be 30 years or old and possess an International Driving Permit.

The entire chalet will cost ¥208,800 (£1,210) per night during the season, rising to ¥226,800 (£1,315) during peak weeks and dropping to only ¥135,000 (£785) late in the season.
