Madarao is located in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture, between Nozawa Onsen and Myoko Kogen.
Appeal of the Madarao Kogen Ski Resort
In Madarao, 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 28 separate courses. There
are 15 lifts, all of which are free for children 12 and under. The ski
area features a unique bowl-shape. Since Madarao 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 course, Free Ride Park, Kid’s Park, and wave courses- Madarao can be enjoyed by everyone from first timers to advanced skiers!
Banked slalom course of topics also appears in Madarao Course to skip a bank
made using natural topography.
It is scheduled to open on February 17.
Permanent until the end of the season

The course makes use of an amazing natural landscape, including a natural bowl and half pipe.
Sky View can be accessed by Lift 15. After getting off Lift 15 and
skiing down Sky Love for about 200 meters, the course splits into to
two. Go to the right to stay on Sky Love, and go to the left to continue
onto Sky View.
Being another wide course with a mild slope, Sky View is great for beginner/intermediate skiers, as well as families.
Since Sky View is directly adjacent to the Tangram Ski Circus, is also serves as an access point to the Tangram ski area.
