Hi I have 4 adults and 2 child going for ski at madarao ski resort from 25 to 30 Dec. Do you know if there’s any promotions for ski passes during this period?
One option for adults would be to purchase the Shin’etsu Shizenkyo Super Value ticket. It comes with five tickets that can be exchanged for passes at 21 ski resorts in Nagano, including Madarao. The price is 21,000 yen, so each ticket is only 4,200 yen, and it includes extra deals like lunch or onsen vouchers. At Madarao, the super value ticket gets you a one-day lift pass (4,500 yen) and a 1,000 yen lunch voucher, so you’ll save 1,300 yen each day! Numbers are limited, so consider purchasing soon.
For kids, there aren’t any special passes that I can recommend.
I hope that answers your question.
Thanks very much for the information. I have also found an app called webket+ that sells Madarao ski passes at 2,800 yen per day. However the information are all in Japanese, hence unable to figure out if the rate is applicable for foreigners and the period of my visit. Are you able to help?
I am not sure what that ticket is, as there is no ticket listed at that price on a majority of websites. It may be a scalper selling individual tickets from a ticket booklet. Unfortunately, I cannot offer any advice there.
I apologize for the inconvenience.
