Madarao mountain resort is located in the northern part of Nagano prefecture, between Nozawa Onsen and Myoko Kogen. We offer a cool respite in summer, and in winter becomes a ski resort area boasting the finest powder snow.
In Madarao mountain resort, 60% of the courses are ungroomed, so there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to enjoy a fluffy, deep powder when you ski. Also, since not many people like to ski on powder, there is not a lot of competition for the slopes.
Mt. Madarao stands 1382 meters tall and has 30 separate courses. There are 11 lifts. The ski area features a unique bowl-shape. Since Madarao mountain resort was host to Japan’s first Freestyle Skiing Competition, there are many unique courses to choose from.
There are groomed courses, ungroomed courses, the Tree Run courses, Free Ride Park, Kid’s Park, and wave courses. Madarao mountain resort can be enjoyed by everyone from first timers to advanced skiers!
