Hakuba 47 was established in 1990. The name refers to the incredible 4 seasons of Hakuba, which guests can enjoy 7 days a week. Many guests visit Hakuba 47 during the winter months to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and even snow picnics! These activities continue all the way into Spring, right up until the beginning of May. At this time you can then view spectacular cherry blossoms, and enjoy the very best of Winter and Spring simultaneously; soaking up the sunshine on the slopes, with green and blossoms in the valley.

Summer time undergoes another complete transformation as the valley become lush, green and beautiful. There is a plethora of activities for summer guests to enjoy, such as downhill mountain biking, outdoor BBQs, a large kids area with a mini steam train, fishing, swimming and hiking. Autumn then brings the temperatures back down before revealing truly vibrant and breathtaking colors, arguably the most beautiful time of the year in Hakuba. As well as hiking, this time of year also offers many cultural activities, such as soba making / oyaki bun and craft workshops.

We are located in the Hakuba Valley, nestled in the Northern Japanese Alps. This snow sports Mecca is comprised of 10 ski resorts, totaling over 200 runs. The view from Hakuba 47 is truly spectacular, with rugged mountains providing and dramatic backdrop. Most notably is Goryudake (5 dragons), which bears a striking resemblance to a real life "Black Diamond" logo. The three peaks of Hakuba, Yarigatake, Syakushidake and Shiroumadake are also impressive from this perspective, with Shiroumadake, the valley's highest peak, on the right hand side. Shiroumadake, meaning white horse, is also the town's namesake - so it can also be known as Mt. Hakuba.

Hakuba 47’s lift ticket includes two other resort areas; Hakuba Goryu and Iimori. Connected at the top and under the same pass, you can ski all three areas and 23 runs by interconnecting lifts and without the need for transportation.

Our resort proudly offers Hakuba Valley’s longest winter season (December through to May), as most runs are north facing. As well as top to bottom skiing all season long, there truly is something for everyone with a great begin area at the mid station, wide, consistent intermediate slopes, and even several mogul fields for the advanced. For the very adventurous we have a Tree Riding Zone which is full of great powder, interesting features and steep, fun sections. Lastly, we are extremely proud to offer the best terrain park in the Hakuba Valley with its well-maintained half-pipe and variety of boxes, rails, bonks, jumps, waves and berms serviced by two double chairs.

At Hakuba 47 you can sit back on the chairlift to view the breathtaking scenery and keep an eye out for the adorable snow monkeys and kamoshika (Japanese serow) who call Hakuba 47 home.

We look forward to seeing you at Hakuba 47.
