Rankoshi Chisenuppuri
蘭越町チセヌプリ (北海道 蘭越町)
Planned season: This ski hill is currently closed

Rankoshi Chisenupuri is a small ski hill located on the southern slopes of Mt Chisenupuri and to the west of Mt Niseko Annupuri and the famous ski and snowboard resorts in Kutchan and Niseko. It had been closed as a ski hill since late 2013 but it looks like some snow cat tours are being held there during the 2016/2017 season.

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
