Canmore Ski Village is located on the slopes of Kitoushiyama in Higashikawa town to the east of Asahikawa city. Higashikawa has a 'sister cities' relationship with Canmore in Canada, hence the name of the ski hill. There is a 1.5km cross country course by the base area.

Canmore Ski Village introduced a brand new pair lift and a new 700m long course (Rabbit) last season (2018-2019).

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.
