Sapporo Kokusai Ski Resort, Sapporo

4.2
#2 of 6 in Winter Sports in Sapporo
A little-known and modest ski resort, Sapporo Kokusai Ski Resort supposedly boasts some the largest annual snowfalls around, serving as a magnet for those looking for some fresh powder to frolic in. Across its seven slopes, the resort specializes in beginner and intermediate runs, as well as some not particularly challenging black runs. Beginners can take lessons at the resort, with the easygoing runs and good conditions making this a good place to test the water if you're new to the sport. The base of the mountain harbors cafes, equipment hire, and sports shops, but little more in the way of amenities. Though frowned upon, expert skiers may be attracted to this location for its large off-piste areas, which remain unguarded. With our world travel planner, Sapporo attractions like Sapporo Kokusai Ski Resort can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The visit is autumn, the ski resort has not started skiing, the introduction of the red leaf scenery benefits, away from the Sapporo is a distance away, but the autumn scenery is beautiful, is also a part of Hokkaido.

  • Once address is in Sapporo, but quite far from the city. Preschoolers: free, elementary school students ¥ 1,000 and discounts, such as packs, so ideal for families. Top season is roughly the snowstorm.

  • Mesmerized by stories of the powder. Just as good luck or bad weather is not the best conditions. Champlain Kanto and Kansai unlike an elegant impression. Very nice piste.

  • Tried my first skiing experience here on 20/4. I can't tell if it's better or worse than average. But it's fun. One minor thing about this place is that there's only one bus that leaves at 4pm. So the play time is quite limited.
  • Staff could be more helpful even after we told them we're beginner. This ski area is not for beginner as well.
  • Large ski fields & good service. Too steep for beginners though. Mostly for intermediate- advanced skiers. Good powdery snow fields. Not too touristy
  • Do not go if planning to learn or try a new experience, had little to no practice with snowboarding looked yo find a beginner slope, none was to be found. so decided to switch my rented snowboard for rented skiis which cost the same to rent, was told I would have to pay an extra 1000 yen. Felt ripped off because of a lack of warning of additional fees, from there it was just downhill or not in my case with the lack of any beginner slopes. Very costly and bad service at least from my experience makes me not recommend this location.
  • Driving up here is easy.. Nice scenery and kids friendly.. Leave by 4pm if you are weary of darkness.. But i think its alright.. Safe and have road barriers.
