Snow Freak Sunrise

Hotel in Zaō Onsen

Offering ski-to-door access and a ski school, Snow Freak Sunrise is located in the Zao Onsen area. Free WiFi is offered and free private parking is available on site. Each room is equipped with a TV. The owner was very helpful and speaks some english. He will drive you around (ropeway, ski slopes, restaurants, to/from the Zao bus terminal). He was able to give us some guidance on hotsprings and the ski slopes, all you have to do is ask. He has a lot of local knowledge/friends. Try and make a trip to Zao during the weekday (e.g. on a tuesday) so you dont have the super expensive weekend prices in terms of accomendations.
