Hakuba 47 Winter Sports Park (often simply known as Hakuba 47 or 'yon-nana') is a ski area located in Hakuba village. Hakuba 47 opened in 1990. The name comes from the idea of '4 seasons, 7 days'. It is connected with Hakuba Goryu at the top and they share a common lift ticket. Hakuba 47 offers some special Tree Riding Zones for people wanting to enjoy untouched powder tree runs. Spectacular close-up views of Goryu-dake and Karamatsu-dake can be enjoyed in good weather conditions.

Hakuba Village is just over 40km to the west of Nagano city in the northern region of Nagano Prefecture. It was host to some of the major events of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, including alpine skiing, ski jump events and cross country events. In recent years, the Hakuba region has become one of Japan's most popular winter sports regions with visitors from overseas.
