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...

We came to furano for 2 days just before Christmas. Only 1/2 of 1 of the 2 mountains was open. The snow was fluffy but there was not very much of it, hence 3/4 of the mountain was closed. My biggest complaint is that the crowd control was very poorly managed. There were multiple high school student groups there which... More

Less crowded compares to Niseko and other areas, good mix of slopes for beginners, intermediate and expert. though not as big as niseko area. If you prefer not to have anybody to block your way, chances are here is better.

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.

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
