My husband and I did the Nagano Snow Tow during the second week of February 2017, as part of our honeymoon (powdermoon?). We had an excellent experience and would recommend both this specific itinerary and the Japan Ski Tours company to anyone considering a hosted ski trip to Japan. Our host, Soren, was awesome - super friendly, laid back, and helpful. We greatly appreciated the extra help he provided with shipping our ski equipment, and finding our Ryokan in Nagano at the end of the tour. He hooked us up with great dinner spots, drinking spots, and local onsens that gave us a nice diversity (craft beer, soba, ramen, grills, sashimi.....). Our accommodations were fantastic - clean, comfortable, with well thought out amenities for skiers (drying rooms, cozy common areas, fridge space for your beer and sake). The selection of resorts was great - we had alot of fun everyday. The only spot we didn't love was Hakuba 47/Goryu, due to the strictness on tree skiing. We enjoyed the side trip to see the snow monkeys and the local beer and sake brewery. The small group size as nice too, as it allowed for dinners together, ontime departures etc. The tour van was awesome, and we felt totally comfortable and safe on the snowy roads. Thanks again for the great times!
