SpotSkiing

During the severe cold spells that accompany winter, temperatures often plummet below zero and the snow tends to be of the dry variety. Such snow is usually called powder snow or aspirin snow, a type of snow the region of Hokkaido is particularly famous for.

Like many cities in Japan, people can enjoy skiing in and around the Sapporo area as there are many ski slopes with high quality snow nearby. Some ski areas can be found within 20 minutes of the city center with the furthest just 90 minutes away. Combining high-quality snow and large skiing slopes, you can comfortably enjoy skiing all day. In addition, for the novice or unequipped, most of the skiing areas provide ski rental facilities and skiing instruction.
