Myoko Kogen Ski Resort is 4.5hrs from Narita airport. Getting there requires a little bit of extra maneuvering though since taking a bus or the bullet train up to Nagano will need to be followed up with a taxi to your accommodation. Taking a pre-booked private or share taxi from the airport is a good option if you want to avoid the hassle.
