Beautiful views, nice trails- also cater to more advanced riders.. off piste possible although technically a no go( saw plenty of people flying through trees)
No queues and overall a great place to shred.
Try to visit this resort during the week. We did the night sky when we arrived on a thursday afternoon. Long wide run without a crowd. Got good snow and staff very helpful. During the bank holiday weekend the slopes got allot more crowded. Don't...More
A good selection of wide nice and uncrowded Green runs, with red and black runs higher up if you're game. Its easy to navigate between green runs on the lift system. The lift staff were having a snow sculpture competition while we were here, so...More
Couple of schools just by the slope if you need lessons or equipment rental. Nice spacious cafeteria there as well. Being new to skiing, we took a 8 person beginner ski class at 7000yen per pax from an aussie school. Trainer was OK but office...More
We have just spent a week staying at Goryu which has been our first trip to Japan to ski (been skiing North America last 7 years) and have mixed thoughts.
Yes the snow is brilliant, the powder is to die for, BUT
The lift network...More

We had a great time learning to snow board at Goyru and then enjoying the powder! The slopes were so much fun to practice the new skills. Thanks to the patient friendly fellow who taught us at Hakuba Snow Sports School at Imorii.
In the immediate area Hakuba Goyru there is a temple and trail to walk. Ease of this will be determined by how much snow remains. Hakuba Happo is main area a short shuttle bus away. There are a number of Onsen's to visit... More
In the immediate area Hakuba Goyru there is a temple and trail to walk. Ease of this will be determined by how much snow remains. Hakuba Happo is main area a short shuttle bus away. There are a number of Onsen's to visit (traditional Japanese bathing). Further afield there is an easy day trip to Snow Monkey's at Jigokudani. Proximity to local rail line opens up other options such as Matsumoto which has reputedly the best Castle on the main island. Again temples and gardens will feature strongly in Matsumoto. At Goyru, non skiers can catch cable car to top of mountain for views, food and drink.
