About Schanze Nozawa Ski Lodge

Schanze Nozawa Ski Lodge in Nozawaonsen is just steps away from the main gondola station Nagasaka.

We feature 9 guest rooms. We have rooms which are traditional Japanese rooms with futons on tatami mats so that guests can truly enjoy a wonderful Japanese ski experience. Guests who are holidaying with their families may prefer the traditional Family Lofted Rooms, a duplex featuring separate sleeping area for the parents and kids. Guests who prefer the comfort of western beds will be pleased with the newly constructed Junior Studio and Family Studio (opened in season 2017/2018). We are also renovating the Junior Studio and Family Loft Studio (both with Attached Bathroom) to be completed for the 2018/ 2019 season opening. The rooms mentioned are western-styled with either private or attached bathroom. All Studios come with a kitchenette and resting area. Our Family Studio also comes with its own kitchenette, TV, dining, and an entertainment system to keep the kids busy.

We are finally open for all for the 2022/2023 season!

Winter wonderland in Nozawa Really helpful and knowledgeable staff, gave great advise for ski runs and dinner locations. Schanze probably has the best location in the area. Breakfast was awesome too. Definitely my top choice on my next trip. I’m will be back!

Amazing location! We stayed at Schanze for 1 week during January 2020. A great member of staff called Joe picked us up from the Iyama train station in a van. The location was perfect, being only a couple of minutes walk to the Nagasaki Gondola. We were under the assumption we had separate rooms, however the 5 of us (5 adults) ended up all in the same room - not exactly what we would like. But it was ok! We had our own drying room downstairs, so we didn’t have to share the squished one upstairs which was lucky! They delivered breakfast foods to our room every three days, so we could make our own in the room with the kitchenette. Bread, eggs, bacon, fruit, yoghurt, packet noodles, coffee pods, juice and milk. Really great! They also supplied us with 2, 5 day lift passes for half the price. And upon request we could do washing at anytime. The staff also helped us book dinners for our time here in Nozawa, because you can’t get dinner at most places without a reservation. Definitely book dinners for your time here. The restaurants get booked out fast. The staff are very accommodating, and I would recommend this place to anyone coming to Nozawa!

Best accom for skiing in Nozowa We got a traditional room with an en-suite, it was cozy and I couldn’t be happier with my stay there. The staff were attentive, friendly and helpful (special thanks to Francisco). Everthing was clean and the futons were comfortable. The best part about this lodge is that it’s the closest accom to the snow, it’s super close and it’s almost possible to ski directly to the lodge. Thanks Schanze, would defiantly come back!

Best lodge experience in Nozawa! We’ve had a wonderful time staying at Schanze in Nozawa, such a warm welcome from the hosts who could not do enough to make everyone so comfortable. Great location & cosy atmosphere, offering local advice for the village, skiing & eating recommendations. Can’t wait to return next year!

Japan Ski Trip Location location location. Fantastically close to the main ski gondola with 200m walk only. Could literally ski to door. Accomodation nice and clean and warm. Hosts happy to make recommendations and book restaurants and suggest other ski resorts for day trips. We booked the junior suite. Was too small for a family of 3 (1 x 11 year old boy) but the skiing made up for it. The junior suite is small and only takes a couple. Not suitable for a family even with a small child. Breakfast goods supplied in room are adequate and hosts readily replace. Not as good as a Japanese breakfast but there is the convenience of eating it when you want especially if you want a lie in. I didn’t as I couldn’t wait to get out early for the snow. We had amazing conditions with at least 5 days with 30cm fresh powder overnight. The village has certainly been found and sadly you need to book for food most nights or will be disappointed. Onsen 250 metres away is great and my son and I used every day after skiing. NEO bar next door is in my view best bar in the village with supper chilled atmosphere and a good selection of drinks and food. Use the lodge hosts knowledge of best places to hire equipment as we certainly saved a lot through this. We would stay again and will definitely be back but junior suite too small for us. If you are looking for a great location to learn to ski then NO is brilliant for the long easy green runs but plenty of good runs for strong skiers as well.

Great location on top of the Village! Returning guest for a second year in a row. Great location 100m easy walk from the Gondola station which is great as most other accommodation in the village requires a hike up steep slopes in gear. Next to a great bar as well which serves dinner as well as drinks. Rooms are newly renovated and clean. Breakfast is provided; simple but tasty. Already planning to return next year.

Superb locattion, great experience Had a fantastic experience staying at Schanze Nosawa. Thanks to the team for their recommendations and hospitality. Great location too! Liiterally next to the ski gondola and just next door to a cosy child firendly restaurant. Five minutes walk to the main street of Nozawa Onsen village where you'll find a wide range of restaurants, shops and onsens when not on the ski slopes.

Loved our stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Schanze. Nozawa is an amazing ski resort-beautiful, deep snow with powder. On arrival, we enjoyed the hospitality & local knowledge of Eugene. He recommended and showed us on a map various places we could eat dinner (or lunch), the different types of onsen and how they work. Eugene continued to give us friendly advice and provide support during our stay (and cooked up some local specialities one evening-mmm!) We enjoyed meeting other guests in the common lounge/breakfast dining areas. Breakfast was ample with a variety of foods.Kelvin too was most helpful. We were happy with our traditional room which overlooked the ski slopes and ski jump. Overall a fantastic experience!

Great location and a warm welcome.. Stayed at Schanze on a first time ski trip to Nozawa and selected it because of the "ski-in ski-out" features. It did not disappoint being only a few minutes walk to the main gondola. The lodge does have a drying room but we chose to use the storage facilities at the ski-hire place next to the gondola (gives a 10% discount to Schanze guests!) The village of Nozawa is located on a reasonably steep slope - base of the ski area. A lot of the accommodation is at the base or lower down the slope which means either getting the bus up to the car park at the top or lugging the gear up! Schanze is at the top which makes it a sweet journey to the gondola each morning. ROOMS: We (father and 18 year old son) had a Standard room with attached Bathroom. I was wondering how we would go with the futons on tatami mats but was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are compact (particularly the bathroom) but adequate. The room has a heater with instructions in Japanese - ???? It would be helpful if management organised some instructions in English as heating on a ski holiday is important. We did work it out but .... FACILITIES: There is a common room come dining room which is where breakfast is served. This was a good place for a chat with other guests and even a card game. Breakfast was good, something different each day! MANAGEMENT / STAFF: Top marks to Grace and Kelvin who were extremely welcoming and helpful. Grace was genuinely interested in making your stay a good one. Schanze is not a 'five star resort' but offers adequate accommodation in a great location. We would stay here again if returning to Nozawa.
