Ueda (Nagano) next season - recommendations

Question

I am going to be living in Japan from July. Looks like I'll be living in Ueda city in Nagano Prefecture.

Anyone around that area and good recommendations?

I have never been snowboarding before but I'm totally going to get into it. Can't wait.

You'll have some good options from Ueda but none super-close by. The better resorts will be a bit to the north. Shiga-kogen is the closest, good, major one. A little further are Nozawaonsen and Madarao. Both worth the drive for sure. If you think you'll really get into snowboarding/skiing, definitely buy a car.

Closer by:

Sugadaira is actually within the boundaries of Ueda city, but it's not everyone's taste.

You can also go south towards Tateshina and the ski hills over there and east over towards Komoro/Saku/Karuizawa.

Lots of choice with a car.
