Madarao is located in the northern part of Nagano, between Nozawa Onsen and Myoko Kogen. The resort offers great in-bounds tree riding along with incredible backcountry. Over sixty percent of the resort is left ungroomed and management is always looking at opening up new terrain. If you are exploring the Nagano area, it’s definitely worth spending 3 or 4 nights at this resort for a totally different riding experience. Join one of our guided backcountry days and get the opportunity to ride with the local Madarao guides. You can score bottomless turns all within an easy hike out of the resort boundaries. With affordable ski-in, ski-out out accommodation, easy transfers from Myoko, amazing terrain and warm hospitality this is a true hidden gem.
