ONE-STOP POWDER SHOP
Tangram Madarao Tokyu Resort has refined every element required for a great holiday for guests of all ages, and with two hotels right next to the ski fields, it’s the ultimate one-stop powder shop. Tangram Ski Circus, the north-facing ski field at the resort, is covered in top quality, deep powder snow. It is adjacent to Madarao Kogen Ski Field, which combined with Tangram Ski Circus, gives guests a fantastic variety of courses and areas for pros and beginners alike to try during their stay. A new addition is the Powder Zone, a tree run course where skiers can test their reflexes weaving through trees and natural terrain as they ride through fine, ungroomed powder.
Tangram Ski Circus is just as exciting for the kids, who can sleigh down the slopes and run around in the snow in the dedicated kids area. And while adults acquire a snowmobile licence, the kids can play on miniature child-friendly snowmobiles – there’s no shortage of things to do as a family.
The resort’s Hotel Tangram and Hotel Harvest Madarao have both Japanese and Western-style rooms able to accommodate up to five guests, and offer facilities including indoor pools, saunas, hot springs, restaurants, and a well-stocked gift shop, making their hospitality as high quality as the fine champagne powder found on the slopes outside.

Enjoy powder-coated tree runs at Tangram!
Tangram has two tree run courses of 500 and 400 metres: the Apricot (‘Anzu’) downhill, and the Peach (‘Momo’) downhill. These are just two of the more than 16 tree run courses on Mount Madarao, which provide diverse and exhilarating terrain for skiing and snowboarding – some of which is left ungroomed in its natural state. Activities such as snowmobiling and snow-rafting provide more options for enjoying the snow here, and the elegant Hotel Tangram tops off this resort as an ideal snow holiday destination.
