Ski Field activities in Asia
At the foot of the awe-inspiring ski-jump (134m) used in Sapporo's Olympics, this new museum dares you not to break a sweat as you try computer-simulated challenges in hockey, cross-country skiing, speed-skating and ski-jumping. A well-done English-language audio guide takes you through a history of winter sporting and the Sapporo Winter Olympics.
You can also ride the chairlift to the top of the real jump, or hike it. The chairlift costs almost as much as the museum, and operating hours vary.
The slope is aimed at first-timers so don’t expect anything overly long or steep, but children will love it. The snowboard park is more challenging. To get there take the metro to Xinzhuang and hop in a taxi or catch the free shuttle bus (every 30 minutes).
