Accommodation from ¥5,600/person per night!

Just a 1-minute walk from the slopes of the beautiful Madarao Mountain Resort, Altitude Madarao enjoys 270° views of the mountain, and is the perfect base from which to enjoy all that the resort has to offer.

Madarao Mountain Resort is one of Japan’s hidden gems. With 12 metres of light, dry powder snow a season, its uncrowded slopes – 60% of which are not groomed – are a powder lover’s dream. And unlike many of Japan’s better known resorts (think Niseko and Hakuba), Madarao’s lack of crowds means that the resort’s many off-piste runs remain untracked well into the day.

Madarao also offers plenty for skiers at the beginner and intermediate end of the spectrum, with 16 lifts servicing a total of 31 different runs. These include an extensive “Beginner B Course” – perfect for first-timers, and even a kids’ park. As of 2016/17, Madarao has also started offering ski and snowboard lessons to English speakers.

*Offer valid for stay between Dec 15, 2018 to Mar 30, 2019.
