10 Top Cities in the World to Live in if You Want to Snowboard Every Weekend

It's safe to say that if you live in close distance to any of these cities you're very lucky. Now what are you waiting for? Pack up your skis and go!

Sapporo is Hokkaido’s capital and one of its newest cities (in 1857 it had a population of seven, now it’s two million) that has five ski areas nearby, all famed for their powder.

Teine Highland is the largest, and closest, with six lifts, 450-metres of vertical, and some of the best and steepest tree runs on the planet.

Which is crazy given it’s just a 45 minute train ride from central Sapporo. A bit further out is Kokusai, which handles a massive 18-metres of powder per season, and whose off-piste remains largely untouched by the locals.
