There are also slopes for children and a sledding course with an 800-meter run, making it a family-friendly ski resort.

The stream course and downhill course for intermediate skiers are fun courses that take advantage of the natural terrain. Snowboarders can enjoy wall sliding, and when there is fresh snow on the ground, you can enjoy great powder skiing.
In addition, this season, the Sawa course will feature a banked slalom with a series of curves that take advantage of the natural terrain for a limited time until the end of January.
A 50-meter moving walkway has been installed on the kids’ slope, on both sides of which they can freely play in the snow, sled, ski, and snowboard.
