Sapporo Teine review
Just got back a few hours ago from a great day snowboarding at Teine Highlands.

There was lots of powder, especially off-piste. They have a few new off-piste 'Nature Zones' that are great for boarding. It's cool that they actually recommend these new zones even though they have them roped off with signs in English and Japanese saying that it's at your own risk and that if you have an accident and have to be rescued then you will have to foot the rescue bill!

The intermediate and advanced courses were pretty uncrowded, but some of the beginner courses (which I did with my son and wife) were a bit crowded.

We also came here (to Teine Olympia) a few days ago during a public holiday and it was good but really crowded. They also have a snowboarding park area with a lift and stuff at the bottom of Teine Olympia. I haven't tried it yet but it looks like fun. All up Teine is a pretty good ski field in my opinion.
Date visited: From 17 January, 2008
Snow condition on visit: Powder
Things I liked: Close to Sapporo, New off-piste zones
