The 47 side has an excellent terrain park area which features a 100 metre half pipe and several big air jumps and kickers. The park also features plenty of smaller jumps along well as rails, boxes and table tops. The resort combines two different faces of the mountain which means there are plenty of different styles of runs to suit everyone. Getting around the resort is made easy with the two large 8 seater Gondolas and the connecting chairlifts. Take the Goryu Gondola to the top and choose which side of the mountain you want to do next. If you find yourself on the other side of the mountain and you don’t want to ski back, the resort also runs a shuttle bus between the three base areas; Escal Plaza (Goryu), Iimori and Hakuba 47.
Kids are also well catered for at Goryu and 47. Kids from the ages of 6 can take part in half day or full day ski lessons.

For the younger kids that aren’t quite ready to ski, there are several day care centres located on the mountain where you can leave them for the day. There are also separate kids and family areas located at all the base centres. They are a great place for the kids to practise their skiing or just have a big family snowball fight.
