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 courses in detail 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. Places to stay Goryu   has   a   good   selection   of   places   to   stay,   though be   aware   it   is   not   so   easy   to   get   to   the   other   ski resorts   -   without   a   car   your   only   means   is   to   use   the Hakuba   Valley   Shuttle   bus   system .   If   you   do   want   to stay   at   Goryu   check   ou   tthe   Goryu   Accommodation Guide.
