Kunizakai Kogen Snow Park review by Dogchop
I went here with a friend for a bit of variety and got more or less what I expected. This place is ideal for families and beginners.

What does this place have to offer an advanced boarder / skier? Very little beyond warming-up for going somewhere else.

What does this place offer an intermediate boarder (like me)? Right over on the far right hand side there is a box and a jump. If anyone wants to learn how to use these things

Conditions were slushy but still enough snowpack to enjoy it. Very small courses though, and the lift ticket was 5,000, terrible deal.

Crowded too.

If you're from Osaka area, I'd suggest going to Nagano for any trip because the extra money is definitely worth it.

This place was just too small and boring

Vending machines were plentiful, although marginally over-priced as could be expected.

The crowds were definitely enjoying the mild, dry weather, and the restaurants offered good standard Japanese fare; oden,

Hakodateyama is one of the easily accessible mountains in Shiga. Though a little farther than Biwako Valley, it offers a terrain that most often boasts less crowding than its slightly more popular brethren.

You can find a ski/snowboard deal in main JR stations (like Kyoto) with a total cost of 4800 yen for a round trip train ticket, lift, gondola and free drink.

Though the mountain is a bit on the small side, the small amount of time it takes

Had a great day. Not as large or varied as Biwako Valley, but the crowds were less and the snow as good, if not better. With seperate ski/board areas it is a great place for beginners, intermediates, and oldies.

Hopefully next time we go they will have the snow-board jumps open.

Highly recommended.
