Best Skiing and Snowboarding Resorts for Advanced, Beginners or Family's in Nagano and Niigata, Madarao Japan

At Active Life Madarao Japan, it is important to us that we provide skiing and snowboarding packages in Nagano and Niigata that suit everyone. We don’t want to accommodate beginner skiers at the expense of advanced skiers and vice versa. Similarly, we want to provide an environment that is as suitable for families with children as it is for solo travellers and couples. This is why we have a wide variety of skiing and snowboarding resort packages to offer! 

Whether you’ve never set foot in snow before and want to give skiing a try for the very first time, or you’ve spent decades carving up powder all over the world; Active Life has something to suit all ability levels, tastes, and budgets!

Nagano Ski and Snowboard Accommodation Madarao Japan

When many people think about a ski and snowboarding vacation, it’s not just tearing up the powder and having an active and enjoyable experience that springs to mind, but the warm and cosy accommodation that goes with it. This is why the team at Active Life Madarao Japan have invested so much time and thought into our luxury accommodation in Nagano Shiga Kogen. Our duties extend far beyond providing the best skiing in Nagano but offering a safe haven for our exhausted skiers to enjoy after a long day of skiing on Madarao. This is why you’ll find that all the rooms in our hotels are amply spacious, full of warmth, and equipped with every amenity one could ask for! 

Can you think of anything more rewarding than jumping into a nice, hot shower after a day out in the snow, followed by climbing into a luxurious western-style bed with plush pillows and a duvet made of dreams? Neither can we! Whether you are looking for a suitable Nagano ski resort for beginners, or you and your family are looking to take your skiing skills to the next level, Active Life has something for everyone!
