Get yer bikes out!
The snow has largely melted, the birds have started chirping and the bears are getting hungry. Time to dust off the mountain bikes and get ready for some more sweet downhill runs through the Madarao trees. From rugged mountain trails, gravel logging roads and quiet rural ash-felt roads, there is something for everyone when cycling in the Madarao area. This season the quad lift at the ski resort will also open giving you even more vertical to take your mountain bike down.
The end of the 2018-19 season has come around quickly. Madarao Mountain Resort closed officially on Sunday March 31st. There is still plenty of snow on the ground though, and resorts like Nozawaonsen and Shiga Kogen are still open till Golden Week. Looking forward to the Green Season in Madarao, though the snow wont nearly be melted until May. Time to get the mountain bike serviced and ready!
