Hakuba47 Ski Academy is based in Hakuba Village, Nagano Prefecture, Japan and run by Hakuba47 Winter Sports Park (Ski Resort). Yes, we are a part of ski resort while most of the ski schools are independent businesses. So that we can make a stronger team work with other mountain staff such as lift operators, patrols, ticket centre staff, rental shop staff and restaurant staff.
