The Twin Resorts of Hakuba Goryu and Hakuba 47 sit on the southern side of the Hirakawa river. Although owned by different companies the resort is links and the lift pass is valid at both resorts. IN fact is is not really possible to say where one resort ends and the other one starts. Easiest way to remember which resort you are on is if you are using a chairlift that starts with the word “line”, then you are on Hakuba 47, if not you are on Goryu.
Hakuba Goryu has 2 bases, and is divided into 3 general areas. In front of the Escal Plaza Base Center is the Toomi slopes, a wide open beginner to intermediate run. In front of the Rest House Iimori is the Iimori slopes, which is where Hakuba Snow Sports School, one of the premier international ski schools in Hakuba, is located. If you take the Gondola up from the Toomi slopes then you arrive at the Alps-Daira slopes, which combine superb snow conditions with fantastic views over the alps.
Goryu offers some of the best beginner terrain in the valley, and is an idea place to learn to ski.
Almost all days at Hakuba 47 with start with a ride up the Line 8 Gondola. From there you can access Hakuba’s most well known park area, or head further up the mountain on the Line C Quad, and then the Line E pair lift to the top of the resort.
Goryu / 47 offers some of the best back country terrain in Hakuba, accessed on foot from the top lifts. A guide is recommended, and full back country equipment is required.
