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.

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
