The offer, which is available from March 1–7 or 8–15 next year, includes 7 nights’ accommodation, breakfast, transfers, 50% off snow equipment rental, and … here’s the kicker … 20 drink vouchers (beer or wine). The week-long “Ski the Blue” package will set back visitors just ¥45,000 (US$413) or ¥6,400 (US$59)/night and has been designed as the “ultimate holiday escape”, according to the company’s website.

Xplore, Madarao

Xplore by Active Life

Xplore by Active Life was newly renovated in 2018 and is just a three minute walk from the slopes of Madarao, one of Japan’s snowiest resorts (read our guide here). The hotel is managed by the team at Active Life Japan, who own and operate two other Madarao hotels and a snow school called Active Life Life Snow Club.

For the 2019/20 season, the group has also engaged the services of chef Mehmet Semet, an Iron Chef FINALIST, Master Chef Judge, and former Executive Chef at INVITE Bangkok.

The offer is available for a limited time only. Simply fill out the form below for a free quote.
