Overview

Two ski resorts, one hell of a place to ski. 

Hakuba 47 and Goryu are two resorts sharing the one mountain, making it the second largest ski area in Hakuba Valley behind Happo One. They’re connected at the top and their shared lift pass makes it easy to access runs on both sides. Even though it’s technically the same mountain, both resorts exhibit its own persona - Goryu is more beginner friendly at the base but if you’re willing to work for your powder, access the back ridge for breathtaking views and untouched white fluff. Hakuba 47 on the other hand, provides plenty for intermediate and advanced skiers with dedicated off-piste tree zone and the largest terrain park in Hakuba Valley for that extra thrill.

I stayed 5 minutes walk from the resort. I believe this was one of the better and quieter resorts in the hakuba valley. Lovely setup, plenty of runs at different levels amd easy to access. The only downside to the resort is a lack of apres dining spots, although all the... More

We are looking at this option for a school tour. From our information gathering, the resort offers great options for dining and a range of terrain for differing levels. Perhaps better is that it would seem the hospitality is second to none - a key feature of an overseas tour with... More

Hakuba is home to the largest ski resort in Japan! Soft powdery snow is in abundance and all slopes are well maintained. Stay at resorts can bite your pocket, however, it does offer closeness to gondolas and street food and sake outlets. Planning to visit again next year.... More

Hakuba 47 and Goryu was very easy to access via bus from surrounding areas. The snow quality was deep, dry and epic. This resort is family friendly and caters for boarders and skiers from beginners to advanced. Quick Lift lines and on-mountain restaurants are an added bonus. We... More

It absolutely dumped down a few days before going up, and it was still snowing when we arrived. And what a treat that was! It was awesome, not only did it have all the facilities you'd expect from a Japanese resort, it had the most amazing back country. There was a lot of info... More

We visited Hakuba 47 in 2016 and had an amazing trip. I was a beginner at the time with only 3 days under my belt but my partnet is really experienced and we both had a blast. The runs were so long and there were so many options. You just cant beat a nice long soak in the onsen... More
