No, these vouchers are for Madarao Kogen and the vouchers that they can offer in situations like this.

However, I believe that if you pay 500 yen extra, you can upgrade to an all mountain ticket that lets you use the lifts at neighbouring Tangram as well.

Quick info on easiest way to get there? Any way to train this or is it only the bus from outside nagano station? Im itching to ride this place and give it a good going over. :)

Outstanding!

 

The bus would very probably be the best and most hassle free for you ippy. Presume you can get to Nagano easy and you're on the other side of Nagano, right?

Yes, from last year they started doing this. I go there every year and love the place. Small (ish) but fun!

bus it is then. I have a feeling when the shink opens at iiyama they might actually start putting on the buses from there. But its still a stupid year away. Maybe next season, though likely 2014-15 before it happens :(

Ippy there are regular busses now from iiyama train station to Madarao - you get off at Madarao Kogen Hotel right next to the lifts. It helps that the hotel owner Hitoshi Seki-san also owns the lift company ( i.e. owns the mountain)

Yes there is that as well. I neglected to mention sorry.

 

I suppose it depends on whether you prefer buses or trains!

Always train.

 

Im surprised to hear about buses from iiyama. You reckon theres one to kijimadaira? I just have memories of last season in march thinking i could just go from nozawa to iiyama then hop on a shuttle bus or something from the station to ryuoo. I asked the taxi drivers if they ever had buses running from the station to any of the resorts and they were ver muh of the opinion that no, there were none. Cheers for the heads up. :)

actually can we post some more madarao pics in here. I reckon its one of those places like ryuoo that people might not think about but its actually well worth the trip (i assume - since i havent been there im basing it on what you lot have said in the forums).

 

Actually im DYING to review something. No new boards, no new resorts... my fingers need something to get all obsessive about - i just wrote a thousand words or so on carbon array and pop walls the other day just because im clearly going nuts without an outlet.
