SnowJapan posted a topic in MadaraoAccommodation Information on Hotel Tangram in Shinano-machi, Nagano can be found here: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-places-to-stay/nagano/shinano/hotel-tangram
I visited Madarao Kogen for the first time in awhile last weekend. The snow conditions were good. The website has a good coupon for a full day all-mountain (Madarao + Tangram) plus lunch. This coupon was nice, since most of the area I enjoy is on the Tangram side. As a boarder, I noticed how I was outnumbered by skiiers. Still, the resort was much less crowded (for a Saturday) than places like Happone and Nozawa. There are a few key runs - with hardly any people on them - that made it worth it. One is powder wave (kind of on the border of the two mountains, you need to use a Madarao lift for this so I'd suggest the all-mountain coupon deal). A couple of the other Tangram black runs were pleasantly deserted, which means the population hadn't overrun them with moguls yet. I suppose my only complaint is that the lifts are short and slow. Worth the wait though. I'd post some pictures...but I don't use this site often and I can't figure it out how to do it yet (don't have the time to figure it out now) Any tips on how to post would be appreciated, and I'll try to check back here and post some pictures . Happy skiing / boarding!
