It is a friendly slope for beginners. Escal plaza has a good selection of equipment and the food is hearty. Don’t miss the 2 hillside restaurants on the beginner slopes. It connects to Immori slopes hence giving it much variety. For the more intermediate skiers...More

Great for beginner's and beyond. The Carona bar up top is worth a visit for the views! Some good black runs and connection to Hakuna 47. Always good fun.

We skied at Goryu twice in the last week of February/start March. Bluebird skiing at its finest (as long as you don’t mind the afternoon mush) I have rated a 4 as the infrastructure across the whole of the Valley is dated and slow, although,...More

Although there hasn’t been any recent snow - the weather was perfect - the slopes great and the snow good.

Really enjoyed this mountain with the family. Had much wider runs which allows you to ski together in a group. When you combine with hakuba 47 you have plenty to explore. Prefer over happo one. The skiing better for alrounders. Lift tickets also reasonably priced....More

Goryu was a great place to learn to snowboard as their was lots of wide begginer slopes plus a decent amount of intermediate runs too. Try and get the coupon which gives you a $1000 yen voucher for lunch and full day lift ticket for...More

Ski slopes are average, however worse then average when they are jam packed with people. Not many runs to go on unfortunately, best for beginners. The lift staff were super nice and courteous! Always a plus!

With great slopes that cater for all abilities and a good restaurant and facilities on the entrance this is a great spot. Probably more targeted at families but good for anyone. Shuttle busses do pick up and drop off to certain locations on route.

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
