Sapporo Bankei is a small, northerly-facing resort found in Sapporo City itself. It is literally just 15minutes drive from the city center. Although the resort has a limited selection of terrain, it is still worth riding for an evening under the lights. And with night skiing open till 10pm along with the ability to purchase passes by the hour, it truly is great value for money.

If you’re in Sapporo for a few days and develop an itch for some quick shred action, this is the place to go.
