Kurohime’s terrain park is designed for all snow lovers, from beginner to advanced, and park staff members carefully maintain kickers, rails and other park features.

With dynamic runs that take advantage of the natural terrain, Tangram Ski Circus is connected to the adjacent Madarao Kogen Ski Resort. Purchase of a Mountain Pass gives you access to all 30 trails extending across both areas.
