I love this place. Great slopes, enough variation and challenges for better skiers, but also very quiet (relatively speaking) and great for begineers and kids. We stayed in an AirBnB about 300m from bottom of the mountain. We could walk or drive to the lifts....More

We did a day trip by bus from Tomamu and upon arrival we were pretty much dumped at the New Prince Hotel. If you were a guest staying at the hotel the facilities were great and the service friendly and helpful but for a non-guest...More

Second time to Furano Ski resort. A lot of opportunities for tree runs and off piste. Usually good snow (if it has poor snow then most other ski resorts in Japan will be even worse). Relatively nice and friendly skiiers. Quiet and beautiful environment. A...More

With new snow everywhere in Hokkaido had great skiing for a powder buff. There is some side country skiing and when I was there the crowds of western travelers in Niseko were replaced by Chinese New Year tourist crowds.

It was very cold (-16) and the snow was prefect. We stayed at Furano prince, rented skis from hotel and booked private ski lessons (English speaking) through Furano Snow School. The green runs are nice and wide, it wasn’t too crowded when we were there....More

This is my third visit to this resort. The first time in 1995 there were hardly any westerners. There was powder galore off the pistes. These days there are heaps of westerners and it’s difficult to find powder that hasn’t been carved up after 10am....More

Lots to explore here at Furano. Its got many steep chutes and loads of tree skiing. Had a great time here and will come back. Our favourite ski hill in Hokkaido! Mind you we were spoiled with the snow.

Overall I'd suggest that if you go here you spend 1 to 2 full days as part of a larger tour of Hokkaido ski areas. This because it has only a moderate total of ski runs and Furano itself seems to mostly be lodging, without...More

Personally I don’t think it’s that much fun for non-skiers as there’s not a huge amount of things to do in Furano in the winter other than ski. It’s so cold you don’t really want to wander around the town either! I suppose... More
