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.

Skiing at Hakuba 47 and Goryu was an amazing experience and perfect for a first time skier. There are a range of slopes which will challenge both beginner and more advanced skier/boarders. Since skiing at Hakuba 47 and Goryu I've been dreaming of my return to the slopes.... More

Hakuba is an amazing resort with easy access to Tokyo via the train system, deep snow (up to 11 metres per season if I remember correctly) it has a great apres of an afternoon and still has some Japanese culture left with some great little restaurants and bars. I stayed in... More
