Joined with Madarao and sharing a mountain...but quite different
Tangram Ski Circus is located on the same mountain as Madarao Kogen and the resorts are actually connected. You can buy individual tickets or a joint one for a bit more.

They may share a mountain and I suppose snow conditions most of the time, but they seem to be run quite differently.

Madarao Kogen over the last few years has really upped the "ungroomed" theme giving legal access to some really nice tree powder runs - there seems

Great snow at a small but family friendly resort
I have used the same review text as I did for Madarao as I skied both of them together on this day

I went to Madarao and Tangram, thanks to SJ, well the Madarao side of it.
By paying 1500 yen I was able to get a full mountain pass, with handing in the voucher, which then gave me quite a lot of terrain to ski on.
As these two resorts are joined I will review them together here.

Kurohime Kogen Snow Park review
Excellent for families with small children.

Ski school available for small kids and usually not many people so they get almost 1:1 attention. Mostly intermdeiate slopes so definitely not a challenging course but good enough for mum and dad to escape while the kids are in ski school.

Tangram Ski Circus review by Timmo
Linked with Madarao to the north of Nagano city, I really like this place.

The positioning is great - on a mountain overlooking Iiyama/Nozawa one way and Myoko and the spectacular mountains in the other.

Good resort. Buy the 2 mountain ticket to enjoy a wider space.

Tangram Ski Circus review (submitted before 2003)
What a nice place! I especially like the atmosphere and the way you can also use the connecting resort called Madarao.

Fantastic views of Myoko and beyond on a clear day.
