The winter season has arrived! Introducing the latest information on ski resorts, mainly in the Joetsu, Myoko, and Hokushin areas.
About 20 minutes by car from Joshinetsu Expressway “Myoko Kogen IC” and “Shinanomachi IC”. Tangram Ski Circus, located on the northwestern slope of Mt. Madarao in Shinano Town, Nagano Prefecture, is a snow resort that combines skiing, playing, and staying with a family-friendly slope that makes families happy. Equipped with 5 lifts, 19 courses are prepared according to the level from beginner to advanced. You can enjoy the finest powder snow on the tree run course for advanced riders who glide through the trees.
From the official website of Tangram Ski Circus
Most of the courses are connected to Hotel Tangram, which is the base of the ski resort, so even first-time visitors can enjoy skiing without hesitation.
From this season, we have introduced IC card lift tickets and IC gates so that you can get on the lift smoothly without showing the ticket to the staff.
Lake Nojiri Terrace
Tangram Madarao Onsen open-air bath
There is a gentle slope area with a moving walkway (snow escalator) and a kids’ park on the slopes, so children and beginners can rest assured. There are various activities that even non-skiers can enjoy, such as snow rafting, Lake Nojiri terrace, one-day hot springs, and an indoor pool with a jacuzzi.
