Madarao is known for its many tree runs and powder lines, known as Powder Wave. In fact, resort employees work to cut down trees in the summer in order to make awesome tree runs - a testament to this mountain's dedication to offering superior tree runs.
When Nozawa gets too crowded and competition for fresh snow is high, Mt. Madarao is the place to be. It's about 45 minutes drive from Nozawa Onsen.
