If you love powder snow, a well-run resort and no queues, Furano Ski Resort may be just the place for you! Our family of three has just finished our 15 days of skiing here and loved it! To date, all lifts (except one on Kitanomine side) are running. The longest queue would be at the Kitanomine Romance No.1 about 1pm,... More

Visiting here with my 60+ year old parents. Had the deepest day of my life. Untracked and bountiful turns late in to the day. If this had been in the states it would have easily been skied out by 10am. We were still finding giggly chest shots at noon and no lift lines to speak of. The rope way (tram)... More

There was something for everyone in our diverse group at Furano. We loved the crowd less runs and no queues at the lifts, as well as the night skiing. It was big enough to keep us entertained for two weeks with runs suitable for beginners to advanced. Our favourite was the hooded quad at Furano Zone giving access to two... More

Pure pleasure for uncrowded skiing experience with absolutely no queue at chair lifts, especially at higher grounds on the mountains. Ski school groups tend to stay on the lower mountains in controlled fashion. Visibility was still good despite constant snow showers and that was good for the top-ups! Great for intermediate skiing or just pleasurable cruising on both red &... More

Hokkaido gets the most reliable early season snow in Japan, and early January 2016, it was pumping at Furano. 30-50cm of light powder snow every day. Groomed slopes for beginners, and plenty of runs for intermediates. Powder junkies are well catered for as well. Like a lot of Japan the steeps and very long runs are lacking, but there's powder...

Not really packed with people, and for first timers, it's a good learning place. Not saying that it's bad for pros. Several rental shops around, and they have classes too which are quite affordable. Please book in advance as it's always full during winter. We went to the Kitanomine area which are not as crowded as the other bigger one.... More

The snow quality is fantastic, lots and lots of fresh dry snow. The ski area itself is quite small, however with relatively few crowds this makes up for it. What stops this place from being great is the fact that lifts just seem to stop running. On one given day 3 chair lifts stopped operating which meant getting to one... More

Great 5 days of snow in furano - couple of big snow days and a couple of bluebirds. We arrived just after the full resort opened and a whole pile of snow had landed. Conditions fabulous. Not a huge resort but enough runs to keep us intermediate skiiers/boarders interested. Never a long wait for the lifts. Nice that its not... More

Been several times the resorts ok. Adequate lifts and good snow. Friendly people and reasonable prices. Poor ski school and poor food on snow (unusual for Japan). Hire equipment is also basic and multiple inflexible rules. Plus side no crowds and big area to ski.
