We skied and boarded at Furano again this year and despite locals telling us that it wasn't a good snow year the cover was still meters deep and we had plenty of bone dry powder days. In fact, the snow conditions were blissful. It snowed a little almost every day and despite that I think we had a little sunshine... More

Enough ski runs to keep everyone happy. No real off piste areas as the Resort prohibits it. Day trips available if you desire deep snow. Great traditional meals available just down road from Kitatomina. Must respect Japanese way as this is truly a Japanese resort. Very little English.

Great skiing for a few days. Snow is excellent, lifts efficient no queuing. Quantity of skiing is a little limited but there is a good variety of slopes.

Decent ski resort with fairly cheap passes. There is a 4-hour pass that you can buy for about 4,000yen. The mountain is quite nice, with some gates to access extra terrain up the top. They seems quite relaxed about 'out of bounds' and many places don't even have fences. There is a huge, super highspeed gondola which is very handy.... More

Beautiful, quiet, great powder snow, and not crowded at all! Furano is definitely the place to pick is you want to experience a relaxing ski experience far from the busier resorts like Niseko. Just th trip by train in the white countryside of Hokkaido is worth the trip.

We decided to spend a few days at Furano Ski Resort to get more traditional Japanese experience. The surrounding town etc was quite enjoyable but the skiing itself was awful. You can only ski/board long groomed runs which are not that steep at all - mostly beginner and intermediate. No off piste skiing and the tree's are so tightly packed... More

As a specialist group we mostly skied in the trees and off piste. Having said that we did spend a couple of days skiing the groomers and exploring the resort. So much variable terrain and not many people. If you have a few days then spend them at Furano. The staff are very friendly and courteous and the variety of... More

As a group of five snowboarders and one skier we found the Furano ski area to be the better of the two options based out of New Prince Hotel. For a start in was right at our doorstep we found more interesting terrain on the top to chairlifts to explore. The bottom of the mountain can be busy with school... More

Fresh snow fall every couple of days (or nights) and well-groomed runs. Not particularly challenging but enough runs over both areas for sufficient variety for one week. Better skiing in Furano zone but stayed in excellent Tsuru Appartments in Kitanomane zone so able to ski right back to base at end of day from highest area of mountain (Panorama Run... More
