Morning from Madarao.

And it is another fine morning here as expected.

How's that forecast looking? Still for warming up until Thursday and some rain then, with temperatures dropping back right down from Friday with fresh snow falling. That last bit sounds good!

Madarao has announced that from 23rd December more of the lifts and slopes will be open. They plan to have the Super Quad lift, the Number 11 lift, Number 12 lift and Number 15 lifts operating in addition to the two lifts that are already moving. The top connection with Tangram Ski Circus and the joint lift ticket with that resort will also be available from that day.

---

Lifts currently operating at Madarao Kogen:

- Number 1 lift
- Number 2 quad lift

Official snow depth:

- 50cm

Lift tickets at Madarao Kogen are available at the special price of 2000 yen for adults and 1000 yen for children (elementary school age).
These lower prices are available until Thursday 22nd December.
