Eniwa Shimin is a small ski hill located to the west of central Eniwa and Chitose city in Hokkaido. It first opened in 1972.
Eniwa Shimin actually did not open for the 2017-2018 season, due to the facilities getting old and needing maintenance. Interestingly, people using the ski hill were actually increasing just before it had to close. But it came back for the 2018-2019 season - the single lift was replaced by a new pair lift and there are now officially two courses rather than just the one. Yey!
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.
