Madarao Mountain Resort


Madarao Kogen sits on the border of Niigata and Nagano prefectures. Half of it falls with in Iiyama city in Nagano while some of the slopes fall with in Myoko City. Madarao is becoming well known for its ungroomed courses which more advanced skiers and boarders love. Mt Madarao provides amazing views of Mt Myoko and the surrounding mountain range. On a clear day, the view is spectacular. Madarao shares the mountain with neighbouring Tangram Ski Circus and you can purchase a joint ticket which will allow you to ski the whole mountain.
