Q: Do you have storage facilities?

A:
Yes, we have small (¥400 per day) and large (¥700 per day) coin lockers available at our base area.

Q: How is Hakuba47 different from other resorts in the Valley?

A:
There are a few things that set us apart from other resorts.
Firstly, most of our slopes are north facing, which means that we have the longest season for skiing top to bottom.
So while other resorts are crowded onto their upper slopes and guests are forced to download on the lifts during the early and late season - the chances are you'll be skiing all the way down at '47.

We also have a great selection of ski schools for our guests to choose from, so there is sure to be a service that suits you. Further more, we are currently the only resort in the valley to provide lift line priority for our overseas guests taking lessons. Which, when you are paying for your time is a BIG deal, especially during busy times such as Christmas & New Years.

We also boast a large, well designed and maintained "47PARKS" Terrain Park which is serviced by a pair lift.

Q: Am I allowed to fly my drone at Hakuba47?

A:
Due to a high number of lift cables, towers and the lifts themselves, having drones in the air poses considerable risk to the infrastructure, staff and public. Therefore, all drones are prohibited within the resort. Thank you for your understanding.
