Unless the facilities are used for competitions, visitors can access the site's observatory by using the chair lift. Before or after your ride up to this popular vantage point, consider stopping at Sapporo Winter Sports Museum at the bottom of the hill, which features exhibits dedicated to the Olympics Games that took place here.
