Located just to the Northwest of Sapporo, Teine Highland offers incredible skiing and phenomenal scenery right on the doorstep of Hokkaido's biggest city. The Highland area is connected to the Teine Olympia zone just below it by ski lifts, runs and the main access road. All tickets are valid for both and the two areas are operated as one resort. The Highland area is fairly steep with some narrow, switchbacking cat tracks connecting the main groomed runs meaning most beginners and intermediates looking for good open groomers will be happier lower down in the Olympia area. For advanced skiers and riders looking for steep, varied terrain with chutes, drops, glades etc Teine Highland should be at the top of your list. Access to the highest lifted point is via the new Summit Express quad chair (opened Dec 2008) allowing quick top to bottom laps. Also from the top of the Summit express, Teine Highland resort permits a short 10 minute walk to the old ropeway station (decommissioned in 2008) from where you can access a series of steep powder bowls. All of these bowls ski back to lifts but make sure you know where you are going (or travel with someone who does) as there are no signs and the trail back is just a ski track. If you do miss the track home, you will be in for an extremely long walk. It is important to remember that in out of bounds backcountry terrain, there is no ski patrol and you are riding at your own risk. As such appropriate caution should be taken if you choose to enter this area.

Visitor Reviews of Teine Highland

The Shogun from Japan writes:

The best kept secret in Hokkaido! Top class steeps 'n deeps 20-30 mins from central Sapporo! The runs are short, but the uncrowded slopes and easy access to virgin Hokkaido pow more than makes up for the shorter runs. As the grazing herd stampede for Niseko, Sapporo Teine sits in front of their face and they run right by. Ride uncrowded powder/slopes, head back to your hotel then enjoy apres in the bustling drinking spot of'd be mad to miss Teine out!
