Overview

The Good 

  • Reliable snowfall and excellent ski touring across resorts
  • Top notch terrain park plus an open gate for backcountry access
  • Modern and fast lift system combined with quiet slopes during the week
  • In-bounds off-piste terrain serves up waist deep pow!
  • Family-friendly resort

The Bad

  • On-mountain dining lacks variety and restaurants get packed!
  • Extremely limited accommodation options at the base areas
  • Lack of après-ski and off-slope activities

Find Freshies: Head over the back ridge at Goryu or weave through the trees at Hakuba 47 for plenty of powder stashes. The resort is north facing so the snow is fresh for days! 

Ditch the Crowds: Intermediate skiers can escape the crowds in the Iimori area while advanced skiers can check out the well-spaced out Grand Prix Course. During weekends, Hakuba 47 sees fewer local crowds. 

Local's Pick: Route 1 at Hakuba 47 is a long, straight and fast run, so fast in fact, it's used for downhill races! In Goryu, the Grand Prix Course has just the right steepness and enough space to make wide turns. Dive into the off-piste trees along this course, the waist deep pow here is a real treat!

Goryu is largely beginner/intermediate with the steeper stuff on the other side of the hill in 47. One long groomed black. Not as much tree skiing as other resorts.Limited dining... More

A excellent resort with a good mix of park and groomed runs and not to mention the off piste. Powder quality is one of the best in Japan. Lots of other snow activities to suit all age ranges. The evenings are always full of energy for those who seek some night life.... More

Awesome resort, less crowded than neighbouring resorts but with just as much fun terrain. Goryu is great for beginners through to advanced riders with wide open runs perfect for powder day carves. 47 is generally steeper and caters a little more towards more technical riding.... More

My Hakuba trip in 2017 was a great experience. I was just an intermediate skier but the feeling really kicked in when I let myself go on the slope. The hotel was awesome, hot spring was super relax, food was imaginable. Definitely recommend !... More

Hakuba 47 & Goryu has got to be my favourite place to ride so far. With something for everyone; whether your looking for some park laps, sliding on some groomers, or getting waste deep in pow, 47 and Goryu are for you. They even have a beginners park where you can start to slide... More
