Sapporo Teine is located on Mt Teine in the Teine Ward of Sapporo city, and to the north-west of the city centre. Originally it was two separate ski hills called Teine Olympia and Teine Highland. Teine Olympia has been operating since 1965. Various events at the Sapporo Olympics in 1972 were held at Teine Olympia including alpine skiing, bobsleigh and luge. Teine Highland opened after the Olympics in 1974. A gondola that properly connected the two areas was opened in 2004 and since 2005 the re-named 'Sapporo Teine' has been operating fully as one. There are still some nods to the past though, with the two areas named Olympia Zone and Highland Zone.

‘Teine Gate’, near the Summit Patrol Center, allows access to backcountry at Sapporo Teine.

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.

As of Sunday 9th December, we still need to update the information for about 50 ski hills around Japan. They are mostly very small ones and the information can be very hard to find. We are working to get them all updated as quickly as possible... hopefully within the next week!
