Madarao is located in the Northern part of the Nagano prefecture between Nozawa Onsen and Myoko Kogen. Simply put this is a great place to experience the super light and dry Japanese powder and it is lucky are office is not based here as we would never be open!!
Over half of the resort is not groomed and competition for first tracks here is nothing like on the scale that it is in Europe meaning you will definitely be able to enjoy the superb off piste conditions.
Madaroa is perfect for all levels of skier and boarder and with its unique bowl shape offers a range of different runs including some great terrain in the trees as well as a free ride park. All up there are 30 runs and 15 lifts giving access to that awesome Japanese pow.
Lodge style accommodation here is the most popular and most owners will be happy to show you best places to ride.
Big thank you to Nora from Japan Snow holidays for the photo. Japan Snow Holidays have a great ski out lodge in Madarao which sleeps up to 23 persons.
