Powder and trees
This was our 5th Japan trip. The resorts we have been to previously discourage tree skiing. Whilst there was also the potential for rope ducking, the treed terrain in most of the other Japanese resorts we felt were not worth offending the local management ... what is the point to duck ropes when the terrain in the trees was so gentle that one had to aim straight to risk getting stuck, or has poor fall-lines resulting in significant

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.

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.
