Mount Madarao stands at 1382 metres tall and has two ski areas: Madarao Mountain Resort and Tangram Ski Circus, with 31 courses and 15 lifts in a unique bowl shape. The resort features groomed and ungroomed courses, wave runs, tree runs, free ride park and a kids park. Madarao is still somewhat of an undiscovered treasure and is frequently visited by Japanese skiers and snowboarders offering something more unique than its neighbouring counterparts. 

Madarao receives an average annual snowfall over 10 metres, due to its location and also benefiting from the Siberian storm systems that pass over the Sea of Japan. The resort is mid-sized and is an excellent all round resort with some terrain for everyone from first timers to advanced skiers or boarders (with the exception of extreme terrain). Madarao has a vertical terrain of 440 metres and dedicates 30% of its courses to beginners, 40% to intermediates and 30% to advanced skiers and boarders, providing plenty of options for all levels. 

The longest course is 2.5 kilometres and the steepest slope is 36 degrees. Madarao is opened from 8:30am until 5pm, with night skiing commencing at 5pm until 9pm, weekends and public holidays. During New Years night skiing commences at 5pm until midnight. 

Madarao appeals more to skiers and snowboarders who enjoy powder snow, as 60% of the courses are un-groomed for the pleasure of deep powder skiing. However, because deep powder skiing is an acquired taste there are few people of each run, giving you the liberty to ski on untouched powder without much competition. The resort also features 12 official tree ski courses, more than any other ski resort in Japan.
