We skied the kitanomine region of the Furano ski field for 9 days. It's linked to the Furano region of the same field by lift access and trails making it a reasonably large area for a multi day stay. The weather was good, we arrived in a blizzard but most mornings were fine, however some deteriorated by the afternoon. Regardless... More

I liked the Furano ski area as there are no so many people and hence it feels like you can have the whole mountain to yourself. We had no waiting in lift queues. First day was brilliant spring sunshine which was followed by two days of massive snowfall. The second day was quite tricky to ski as there was about... More

Furano is the best place to ski/board if you are a genuine winter sports person. Plenty of runs. Well managed and serviced. Back country options (but enjoy this more and stay safe with a local guide). But it is not a party town. So stay away if you want to drink beer all night (no night life) and definitely don't...

I recently visited Furano with a mixture of Family & Friends, we had a fantastic time perfect snow with on piste powder runs every day!!, The resort is small compared to Australian ski fields however the snow quality is mind blowing and for the adventurous there is plenty of deep powder for days on end in the off piste areas,...

Great powder and very good side-country. No crowds, and its possible to still be getting freshies at 3pm! And like most of Japan, the pistes are immaculately groomed for a few feel-good runs. We stayed at the New Prince hotel, but there is nothing much there besides the hotel, so I would recommend to stay on the other side of... More

Unfortunately when we visited we had only a couple of days with small amounts of powder snow that fell!!!!! But, what we did receive was enough to get an idea of what it would be like on a good day!!!!! Great terrain, with easy to work layout!!!!!

Skied Furano Ski Area, which is part of the Prince Hotel group February 2017. Never crowded but noticeably busier on weekends, mid-week can be very quiet on the slopes. The resort allows tree skiing in some areas and after snowing the powder remains fresh due to the cold Hokkaido weather. Not a big destination by Japanese standards and small by... More

Furano is a quaint little ski village that can keep you busy for 3 days max unfortunately if you are above average skier. The snow is plentiful and dry and it seems to snow at least once a day. Runs are quiet long and wide with some challenging. Lift queues are non existent so you get plenty of runs in... More
