Sapporo Teine is located on Mt Teine in the Teine Ward of Sapporo city and to the city centre's north-west. Originally it was two separate ski areas 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 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 the backcountry at Sapporo Teine.
