滋賀県びわ湖バレイ

closed for the 2015-2016 season

Reach scenic trails in only 40 minutes from the Kyoto interchange. We boast 8 trails, located in the number one place for snow fall, that are rich in variety and snow quality. In addition to the sledging trail there is a half pipe, a snow park well equipped with items as well as a slalom trail and mogul trail so not only advanced skiers but everyone from children to senior citizens will have a great time. For meals the 'Viking' buffet is very popular and scores full points for the size of the portions!

50 minutes from Kyoto. Fine trails with superb views looking down on lake Biwako.
