I am planning to make a marriage proposal to my girlfriend whom I met three years ago while snowboarding. I don’t mind where or how much, so please tell me a hotel with nice atmosphere adjacent to a ski resort.

We went to snowboarding with 10 friends 3 years ago, and hit it off well together. We have been in a relationship since then, and I decided to get married to her. We both like snowboarding, so I am planning to make a marriage proposal in the evening after snowboarding at a place with great atmosphere. Please tell me a place where I can succeed for sure.

The snow quality is exceptional! It is a resort hotel

Unlike ski resorts near Tokyo, snow quality is good and I like the relaxing and spacious feel. While watching New Year’s Eve countdown fireworks, I think you will be in a mood like, "we will see this together next year and forever!." ❤

In front of the hotel is slopes.

A distance from the hotel to slopes is the best among other many ski resorts. I as a person born in Sapporo can guarantee that the snow quality is great. It is even better than Zao known for its good quality snow. Slopes rich in variation are one of the tops in Japan. There are two courses that snowboarding is not allowed, but those are for families and it would be no problem for you. A few years ago, I saw Keizo Miura (Yuichiro's father) who I believe died as an age of 99-year-old skiing few courses and then staying at the lobby in the hotel. Change a train at JR Morioka Station and get off at JR Appi-Kogen Station (unattended station). A free shuttle bus will come and pick you up if you contact the hotel in advance. The atmosphere of the hotel is not bad, I believe you can choose a room from a wide selection.

If here

I recommend Naeba Prince Hotel. Take an important step by getting a help from a nice hotel with a good atmosphere. Whether if you will succeed or not is probably nothing to do with choosing a hotel, but please do your best to offer her a proposal of your lifetime. Good luck!

A huge Snow Resort

One of the best snow resort in Japan.
There is a bar in the hotel, so how about make a marriage proposal with a snow background?
I recommend to stay in a hotel suite in the building No.2 for such a precious occasion.
It costs quite high at hundreds of thousands of yen per night, but the room has great atmosphere surrounded by a snow field as far as the eye can see.

In front of slopes! Hot springs are also available.

A hot spring inn is good, but I think dinner at a hotel is better. A restaurant would ensure decent food and it is possible to arrange something in advance. You can enjoy snowboarding at night, and make a proposal either outside or indoors. I think it is a good situation for a marriage proposal?! I myself also used.

You can relax peacefully.

This inn is adjacent to Appi Ski Resort (a 3-minute drive by pick-up shuttle), famous for its good quality snow. This inn is a mixture of hotel and B&B. The hot springs and food are perfect, yet the price is affordable. It is calm and not flashy and it is an ideal place if you want to casually stay.

Delicious meals

he food is delicious and the room is spacious. You can stay relaxed as a couple or a family, and a view from the room is wonderful. In front of the hotel is Joetsu Kokusai Ski Resort and you can dine in the hotel as well. It is surrounded by nature and quiet.

Atmosphere is good and it is in front of a ski resort

It looks like a highland resort in Switzerland, and slopes are just there.
Although the ski resort is small but slopes are big and gentle.
It is rarely crowded even during holidays and there would be no waiting for a lift.
Atmospheres of the hotel lobby and rooms are good, and the food is above average.

It is close to Furano Ski Resort

I went there in the fall, but if you go in the winter, you may be able to see a snowscape from hot springs. You can also enjoy a buffet overlooking the mountains of Tokachi and Daisetsu through the large windows.
There is a ski resort but you can also enjoy sightseeing in Hokkaido, and the food is delicious. It is recommended.

The inn is founded a thousand years ago. You will feel like you are in a different world with the atmosphere of Taisho Roman

I don’t know your age, but once you set foot in, old clocks and works of Takehisa Yumeji are decorated and you can feel the atmosphere of Taisho Roman that you can’t imagine from its exterior.
Of course, there is no elevator or an escalator. I recommend rather this kind of historic ambience than usual artificial ‘romantic’ atmosphere. A marriage is like this, isn’t it?
Hot springs are high-quality sulfur springs (hot springs of beauty), flowing directly from the source. But be careful not to wear precious metal. The rates vary depending on meals and plans but there are reasonable plans. It may be a good idea to go and see illuminated rime on trees and offer a proposal in a two-seater gondola.
A ski resort is also very close.

Recommended with its name

I recommend "Cupid Village" in the ski resort of Cupid Valley in Joetsu, Niigata Prefecture.
The name is charming and I think it is good for a marriage proposal.
In addition, you can enjoy extraordinary feeling as you stay in a log house.
