Sapporo Kokusai Ski


Hokkaido, Japan

Sapporo Kokusai is a small resort that will suit beginners and intermediates more than advanced riders due to the relatively mellow pitch. You will appreciate the gondola that takes you all the way to the top and allows access to the whole resort. It does snow a lot here, in 2013-3014 no less than 18 mtrs graced the resort meaning it is a great choice for those just learning how to ride powder. There are some off piste lines, in particular under the 2 gondolas although the official resort policy is that you must not ride outside the groomers. It is rarely enforced. It is an easy 60 mins to the resort by bus from downtown Sapporo. See this page for places to stay. These are your options for guided off piste tours to Kokusai: 2 day “Happy Ending” tour 10 day Hokkaido Unplugged tour
