Windsor Snow Village is located on the western side of Lake Toya in Hokkaido by the large The Windsor Hotel Toya, which overlooks the lake. A Ropeway connects the resort with Route 230 near the shores of the lake. This ski hill is mostly used by guests who are staying at the hotel - probably explaining why detailed information is scarce!

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.
