Specialists in Hakuba Ski Holidays
Goryu   may   not   be   as   big   as   Happo,   but   it   is   big nonetheless   and   has   terrain   to   suit   everybody.   It   has great   intermediate   and   advanced   runs   at   the   top,   one of   the   longest   and   steepest   mogul   runs   you   will   see anywhere   and   has   a   fantastic   beginners   area   at   the bottom.   On   top   of   that   it   is   linked   with   Hakuba   47 next   door,   and   you   can   go   to   both   ski-fields   on   the same   ticket.   It   too   has   nearly   a   of   the   highest   vertical drops     in     Japan-about     1,000     metres     and     has incredible   views   of   the   grand   Northern   Japan   Alps. Once   you   have   finished   on   the   slopes   you   can   have an    onsen    (hot    spring)    in    their    Escal    Plaza    base centre. The   more   advanced   terrain   is   up   top   and   particularly the   Champion   course   and   Adventure   course   which are   both   very   steep.   Beginners   are   extremely   well catered   for   in   Goryu   Ski   Resort.   The   bottom   section is    relatively    flat,    and    there    is    an    excellent    Ski    & Snowboarding   school    which   run   English   lessons   out of   the   Iimori   section.   They   also   have   kiddies   lessons in    the    same    place    and    there    are    no    less    than    6 different   ability   levels   to   choose   from.   If   you   book   a package   on   you   can   add   on   as   many   lessons   as   you like.          The     night     skiing     here     is     also     excellent especially if you are at a beginner level. Places to eat/drink/nightlife There   are   many   places   to   eat   at   the   bottom   of   the mountain   ,   particularly   in   the   Escal   Plaza   building including   a   “Subway”   shop   of   all   things.   Down   on   the Iimori   side   there   is   a   good   value   cafeteria/restaurant as   well   as   a   “Mossburger”   shop   (Japanese   version   of Maccas).   Up   top   there   is   only   the   cafeteria/restaurant at   the   top   of   the   gondola,   a   bit   overpriced   for   what you   get   and   always   very   crowded.   Off   the   mountain there    aren’t    many    dedicated    restaurants    but    there are   a   number   of   good   bars   especially   the   Tracks   Bar. See this page  for more info on places to eat/drink.
