Madarao Mountain Resort is one of the hidden gems of the Japanese ski industry, known for its excellent powder skiing, access to side country and backcountry terrain, as well as an extensive selection of lifts and terrain to suit skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. Madarao’s northerly aspect is responsible for the incredibly light, dry snow that blankets the resort each winter. It’s also relatively uncrowded in comparison to its more well-known neighbours Myoko Kogen and Nozawa Onsen.

Active Life Madarao is the area’s #2 ranked hotel on TripAdvisor with a 4.5/5 rating, and is strategically situated just a 3-minute walk from the Madarao ski lifts. Extensive renovations undertaken in 2016 have made the hotel an even more -sought-after destination.
