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!
