Okutadami Maruyama is located to the east of Koide, and much of the second half of the journey is through quite narrow tunnels. The area is deep in the mountains and famous for being on the receiving end of huge amounts of snow.... so much that in fact the resort closes from mid January until mid March. It's popular for early and late skiing. The Silver Line road from Oyu Onsen takes you through 22km of winding roads and tunnels. Okutadami is about 34km from Koide IC on the Kanetsu Expressway and also the local-line Koide Station. The nearest Joetsu Shinkansen station is Urasa, about 41km from the resort.
