More snow and powder than Niseko, with much less people. Small resort with long, wide green runs, perfect for beginners, especially snowboarders. Even the red runs are nice and wide. Not much for advanced skiers/boarders, as there is only one black run that is more red than black. One gondola that takes you from the base straight to the top.... More

Very good ski place with powder snow and wonderful scene. It was my first ski and the beginner course is just suitable for me. So lucky to meet a very good instructor teaching me the basic skill, giving me courage, observing what i do wrong and advising me for improvement. What an enjoyable day Thank you Reiko~

札幌国際スキー場は、規模は小さいが雪質が良いので、時々利用していました。しかし、今回2月下旬にもかかわらず、新雪がなく雪が硬かった。わざわざ埼玉県からスキーのためにきているので、この雪質には失望しました。札幌近隣は粉雪を期待するのであれば、2月中旬までに来た方が良いようです。 I've sometimes enjoyed ski at Sapporo Kokusai skiing ground because it's had good conditions of snow even though it's been small scale. However, it had hard snow in late Sep this time. I was disappointed with this situation because I came here to expect powder snow. You might visit here until middle of Sep. if you want powder snow.

We took the 7:20am bus from Keio Plaza Hotel (next to Sapporo Station) reaching the ski place by 9:10a.m. We booked ahead an english speaking private coach. It is 21500 yen for 2x2hr sessions including gear. The lift ticket is 3500 yen for a day. The facilities are reasonably maintained. Most skiers were locals. We returned on the 4:30 bus... More

I went there in November 2014 and the place has covered with full of snows. We took cable car up to the hill and you can see very nice Sapporo city scenery. The environment and the cafe are clean. Love the place.

Just an hour from downtown Sapporo by coach service during winter ski season. The slopes are great for both advanced and beginners and well maintained. Staff in the ski school and rental shop are very helpful and efficient though they could do with more English-speakers for the few non-Japanese skiers. If you want an English speaking ski instructor, I strongly... More

During no event period this place is so quiet and nothing much to comment. You can see the Sapporo City but the view is not really fantastic as the tree branches will block your camera view.

Good to take the ski lift up to the top to see the views and the famous ski jump. There was snow on the ground which helped to create the right atmosphere. It would be advisable to make time to try the various snow activities simulations in the Ski Museum.
