Loved this ski area at Goryu. The snow elsewhere was getting thin but still great here. The Gondola ride was great. Good beginner slopes and other challenging slopes for those who were so inclined. Food was good and reasonably priced. Would come back here again.

As expected, there was not a heap of snow that had fallen when we got there but we were still able to have a fun time with lovely groomed runs. There was not much available for tree skiing or skiing through the gates as they were having a very late start to the season. Goryu & Hakuba 47 was our... More

What a surprise powder up top sunshine. Many of the lifts are older style doubles but a nice gondola takes you up to alps 360 area. Many of the runs are short but when combined with Hakuba 47 you can do some long trips to the line 8 gondola. Many beginners. Not a lot of advanced terrain. Over all good.

We traveled early in the season (between Xmas and NY) so the snow was sparse and only half the mt was open but the lines for lifts were still ridiculously long - we had to wait around 30mins just to take a chair back up for a 2 min run. Too many people on too few runs made it really... More

Very gentle beginner slopes at the bottom; there is a children's and "first timers" area too. A large center at the bottom caters for cafes, restaurants, ski hire and ticket sales. A few restaurants along the side of the lower runs also caters for lunchtime.

Happo is the place to start but goryu has its own charms for a day or 2. 3 different start /pickup spots (which can be a bit confusing for those not in the know!). Solid intermediate runs, green runs lower down tend to be a bit choppy, possibly contributed to by the constant stacks of beginner locals! Thoroughly recommend the... More

I was in the fresh powder at Happo47 on the day my daughters went to Happo Goryu. (Read my report on that mountain) My daughters went to Happo Goryu to have a powder lesson on their snowboards and had the best time ever!
