Attention Skiers and Snowboarders all over the world

The ski season is coming at long last, which all skiers and snowboarders have been looking forward to. It’s time to enjoy winter sports.
As Shiga Prefecture is surrounded with lots of mountains, in winter, Shiga becomes a popular place which is crowded with tourists enjoying winter sports. All of the mountains are covered with beautiful and favorable snow for them to go skiing or snowboarding, so almost all of the tourists seem be satisfied with such wonderful snow there and enjoy winter sports. In addition, because of such popular snow on the mountains, not only Japanese people but also foreign people visit ski resorts on the mountains and enjoy skiing or snowboarding.
There are currently nine ski grounds available, and two popular places covered with such nice snow this season are written down below.

Biwako Valley
This is where people can overlook beautiful snowy scenery, which has eight courses enjoyed by all people, who are from beginners to advanced skiers or from adults to children.

Okuibuki Ski Resort
This is one of the most large-scale ski grounds in the Kansai area, which has a big amount of snow now, so people can enjoy the powdery snow.
