Hakuba 47 Winter Sports Park (often simply known as Hakuba 47 or 'yon-nana') is a resort located in Hakuba village. Hakuba 47 opened in 1990 and the name comes from the idea of '4 seasons, 7 days'. It is connected with the Hakuba Goryu resort at the top and they share a common lift ticket. The resort offers a 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 47 has been operating since 1990 and so this season they are celebrating their 30th Anniversary (with fresh shiny new special logo. Hurray!)

Hakuba village is just over 40km to the west of Nagano city in the northern region of Nagano Prefecture. Hakuba was host to some of the major events of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics including alpine skiing (at Hakuba Happo-one), ski jump events and cross country events. The backdrop of the North Alps makes for a spectacular mountain setting. Along with the ski and snowboard resorts in neighbouring Otari village to the north and Omachi City to the south - collectively known as 'Hakuba Valley' - this is one of the major ski and snowboard resort regions of Japan. This map shows the ski and snowboard resorts in the main Hakuba region. In recent years the Hakuba region has become one of the most popular winter sport regions of Japan for visitors from overseas.

Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the main island of Honshu. Most of the Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps are located within Nagano (along with neighbouring prefectures). Nagano has the second highest number of ski and snowboard resorts in all of Japan and they are spread around the whole prefecture. Nagano city and many of the major ski resorts are located in the northern region.
