Biwako Valley Ski Resort

Resort features

This resort uses the world's best artificial snow in place of natural snow to ensure plenty of high-quality snow. Among magnificent views of Lake Biwa, visitors can enjoy 9 unique courses including the Horai Panorama Slope and the popular Forest Course. The parking lot is located at a low elevation, so cars can reach here on normal tires on most days. Many visitors come here to enjoy snow activities sightseeing. Views from the Biwa Terrace will take your breath away. This year, fun new activities, including a zip line and snow tubing, join the sledding in the free area.
