“Sapporo Kokusai (札幌国際スキー場, Sapporo Kokusai Skījō) is a ski resort located on the outskirts of Sapporo. Compared to other nearby popular resorts, Sapporo Kokusai is not the largest with only five lifts and seven courses, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in snow. The resort receives massive snowfalls, rivaling amounts seen at Niseko. With six of its seven courses rated green or blue, Sapporo Kokusai accommodates beginner and intermediate riders well, but its single black run might not be as appealing for advanced riders in search of steep slopes. However, the resort does feature interesting off-piste and tree areas (many in-bounds) which offer great opportunities for enjoying deep powder snow in good conditions.”
