Okutadami Maruyama is located deep in the mountains of the eastern region of Uonuma City, close to the Niigata-Fukushima Prefecture border. However, the approach to the ski area is only possible from the Koide area of Uonuma city using the Silver Line road. Much of the second half of the journey is through quite narrow tunnels. Okutadami Maruyama is famous for effectively having two seasons - it closes for the peak winter months (usually from early January until mid-March). As such, it is popular for early and late skiing and snowboarding.

Uonuma city is located just to the north of Minamiuonuma and Yuzawa in Niigata Prefecture.
