A ski-in ski-out, family-friendly hotel in Nozawa Onsen




Schneider’s Premium Ski & Snowboard Rentals is located in the basement of The Schneider Hotel for guests convenience so no carrying gear up and down from the village and you can maximize your time on and off the mountain. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced skier or shredder we have a good selection of gear for you. We carry brands such Salomon, Jones Snowboards, Armada and K2.

We feel it’s especially important that beginners be on good quality standard gear, but also carry fat skis and powder boards so advanced riders can get their fill of the famous Nozawa pow.  Our professional staff will make sure  you are fitted well and ready to go. If you have your own gear, waxing is available as well.

Discounts are available for consecutive day rentals. When making your accommodation booking please indicate you would like rentals and our Lessons and Rentals Manager will contact you directly after your booking is confirmed.
