Madarao Snow Report & Madarao Weather Facts

Madarao Snow Report, Forecasts & Conditions

There isn’t an official statistic for the average annual snowfall at Madarao but it’s estimated to be about 10 to 13meterss, so snow volumes are excellent and there are plenty of Madapow days. The resort also does pretty well in the snow quality stakes thanks to lots of north facing slopes.

On the contrary, a top elevation of 1,350 meters doesn’t necessarily lend itself well to super dry powder during warm spells (Madarao is about 300 meters lower than the top of Nozawa Onsen and 500 meters lower than Suginohara, part of Myoko Kogen, and significantly lower than parts of Shiga Kogen).

On the plus side, the short vertical puts the base area of Madarao higher than its neighbors, so it doesn’t tend to suffer from slops near the bottom during winter. Like the other Nagano ski resorts, the powder can be delightfully dry.
