Sapporo Teine (サッポロテイネ) is the largest of several medium sized ski resorts on the outskirts of Sapporo. Just 40 minutes outside of the city center, the resort features a variety of ski trails from wide, gently sloping hills to long and fast advanced courses which include two runs used for some ski events during the 1972 Sapporo Winter Olympics. The Olympic Torch still stands above the resort as a monument overlooking Sapporo and the Sea of Japan below.

Sapporo Teine's good selection of trails are spread out over two zones and connected by a gondola and a six kilometer long trail. The upper Highland Zone reaches 1000 meters above sea level and features medium to advanced courses, off trail runs, and a snow park with jumps, boxes and rails. The lower Olympia Zone has wider, less steep trails suitable for beginners, as well as a family park offering sledding and tubing.
