That's it folks! Madarao Kogen ski-jo is now closed for the season.

And what as season it has generally been. I think we can safely say that we have enjoyed some pretty amazing snowfall in the region this season. At one point there it felt like we were getting huge amounts of new snowfall every day - it didn't seem to want to stop. And we actually have finished the season now with over 200cm of snow still out there on the slopes. It's going to take a while for the snow to disappear, especially as a look at the forecast shows more snow due this coming week! No doubt though later on this month it will suddenly start getting really warm and come May the snow will be a distant but fond memory.

Summer in Madarao is nice and (relatively) cool. Always worth a trip for general outdoor activities and of course the views over to Myoko in one direction and Shiga Kogen and Nozawa in the other is always spectacular on a clear day.

Thank you for reading these reports, hope you enjoyed them and were able to visit Madarao this season.

We'll see you in the autumn as we start posting reports again on Madarao Now in the run up to 12/13 season. Let's hope it's as snowy as this one has been.

Have a fun and safe spring/summer wherever you are.
