If you love mountains of amazingly light powdery snow and long, wide, uncrowded runs you will like skiing in Furano. The lack of crowds is great! Go to lunch at 11:30 and take your pick of tables in the lodge then order a large bowl of fresh hot ramen to warm up. Black diamond skiers and boarders might be disappointed,... More

Furano is quiet, even in the peak season. It's low on advanced facilities (parks etc), but the snow is excellent and the queues minimal. The town is great and very friendly.

visited both furano and kil.....very BEGINNERS FRIENDLY, guess over 50% are beginners routes although those may be graded as intermediated already in China. very nice panoroic view at the top not that crowded so worry free to hit someone if you are a greenhand

This is our second time skiing in Japan and again we were impressed by the snow and slopes. Furano caters for mainly beginner - intermediate with wide long runs. This was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 older children. You never had to wait for the lifts and hardly saw anyone on the ski runs. The food... More

We are skiers and this place has more interesting terrain, skiing amongst trees and going off different trails. Heard from a snowboarder that he preferred Niseko for this. We hired our gear from Kitanomine side which is much less crowded than the Prince side. It is also easier to traverse back from the Prince side when lifts close at 3.10pm.... More

Limited runs but great snow, no lift queues and reasonable prices. I have been there three times and will be back again. Very Japanese experience there with little english - have to do lots of pointing. Good day trips to the ensen or the frozen lake, winery and cheeze factory.

Furano had lots of dry powder snow, and was pretty uncrowded. Some of the best skiing does require ducking under the ropes and avoiding the ski patrol, but it is worth doing, as long as you can live with the attendant risks of having to pay for the patrol to come and fetch anyone who is unfortunate enough to be...

Amazing town in summer as the place is an adventures paradise. Rafting, ballooning, wild flowers, mountain biking, fishing, horse riding, golf, trecking and much much more. In winter if you want heaps of snow and powder, go to Niseko. Off piste here is out of bounds and rightfully so. Way too many idiots and "Jimbo's" abound that stuff it up... More
