    Blue ski days in the Japan Alps

If you’d like to make the most of the region’s glorious backcountry, why not seek the guidance of a local expert who knows the landscape like the back of their hand? The resort of Mararao Kogen will be your starting point. From the top of the ski lift, it’s a half hour hike to the summit of Mount Masarao – the jumping off point for a day or half a day in unprecedented powder and perfect isolation. Due to the terrain and snow conditions, the tour is suited to intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders only.
