Standing 307m above sea level, this ski jump observatory overlooks a sprawling metropolis with 1.9 million people, offering stunning urban views unlike any other ski jump in the world. Dare yourself to look down from the top and imagine taking off like a professional ski jumper.
Built around 90 years ago, Sapporo Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium has a rich history—it was even selected as one of the competition venues for the 1972 Sapporo Winter Olympic Games. The chairlift to the top is open year-round, and remains open in the evenings during summer—take a ride to the top and enjoy the night views from a unique vantage point.
The Sapporo Olympic Museum at the base of the jump has exhibits that showcase the history and spirit of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and a hands-on area with simulators for jumping, cross-country skiing, bobsledding and more! Hop in the ski jumping simulator, wait for the right moment and feel the rush as you attempt a jump. Your distance and score will be displayed on the screen. After sharing in the passion for winter sports that has gripped this snowy city, you can enjoy a high-end dining experience with views of the ski jump at Nouvelle Pousse Okurayama, which serves authentic French cuisines using ingredients from Hokkaido.
