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

Furano is one of largest ski place in Hokkaido. It is not that crowded compared to other ski places nearer Sapporo. It is suitable for the experienced skiers as well as beginners. However, I have found the main building to be a bit old, particularly the toilet. There are two restaurants in the gondola terminal. Most people go the 2nd... More

We skied in the second week in January (4 - 9th). This early in the season is always a gamble - some years you will have great snow and other years snow cover is still building up. Reviewers who went in the weeks prior to this have commented on the relative lack of snow. This can happen at any resort... More

Resort was a bit old fashioned to others in Japan in a good way. Heaps of snow and although lots of school kids lines were under control at lifts Great ski hire place at old prince, good gear and service. Our traveling friends had young kids and hadn't skied before, they had lessons from same ski hire place and also... More

Furano skiing was very varied. First day boring in a crowded system with stones popping up everywhere. Third day after a good dump of snow one of the best days skiing for 40 years. You come to Furano for the snow, not the system. The whole system was not open while we were there. Slip under the ropes and you... More

12月24日から26日まで富良野スキー場にきているが、雪不足で半分位のコースが閉鎖されている一方、私の泊まっている新富良野プリンスホテルは満室で、多くのスキー客がきているので、ロープウエイやリフトの待ち時間が酷い。ニセコなどと異なり、12月に富良野に行くのは止めた方が良いと感じました。 I've stayed in Furano ski resort from Dec. 24 to 26. However, the half of ski courses are closed due to shortage of snow, on the other hand, Sinfurano hotel where I stay are fully booked, and then a lot of ski fans come here, I have to wait quite a long time to get on the rifts or...
