Powderhounds loves Madarao Mountain Resort for the amazing snow and uncrowded slopes.
The Powderhounds crew said “The Powderhounds coined the term “Mad-a-Pow” some years ago when we first caught a bad case of Mad Pow disease, and on our visit in the 2017-2018 season it lived up to the hype of its slogan. The pow was absolutely mad! It snowed 1.5 metres in 2 days, so if you have a look at the video it’s no great surprise that the face shots just kept coming thick and fast and the GoPro was often caked in powder! To some it seems like a sin to say this, but there was almost too much snow. “
Kuma Lodge and Madarao Mountain Resort
Kuma is a boutique ski lodge, with ski-in, ski-out access to the slopes of Madarao, Japan. Madarao is quite possibly the best family ski resort in Japan thanks to consistent soft snow, uncrowded slopes and a wide variety of terrain (from beginner to complete powderhound)
