Let's enjoy winter sports

The one thing you should enjoy when you come to Hokkaido in the winter is winter sports! In this blog we will be introducing Sapporo Kokusai Skiing Resort which is 1 hour and 30 minutes from our hotel.

There are both gentle ski slopes for beginners and more downhill ski slopes for advanced skiers who want to test their skills. There is also rental equipment available in all sizes which you can pay for on the day you visit (no reservation required) meaning you can travel light to the ski resort.

For first time skiers, there is a free-entry snow park area which is convenient for those travelling with kids. The snow park area contains many fun apparatus to play in the snow and areas to try out skiing and snowboarding for the very first time! You can also rent a snow sled (800JPY for adults, 500JPY for children).
