“beginner friendly, lots of powder!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

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

“Perfect for family skiing!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

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 up the mountain was cheap and yummy - why can't we get this in Australia??? We tried the night skiing as well - and I reckon we were the only ones out there!!!

“Preferred this ski place to Niseko”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

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.
Would come back here again for sure

“Quiet, stunning ski resort with plenty of different runs”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a quiet resort which his great for families with young children, look no further. The new prince hotel was ski in ski out (literally walk 5m then put on your skis and ski to first chair lift 100m away.
The hotel had about 5 incredible resteraunts and a bar with views of the ski slopes.
Night skiing every night until 9.
It was quiet, so if you are looking to party in busy bars, Furano won't be for you.
But my children would beg to take me to the "Kan Kan mura" = play land, every night after 4pm where there was tobogganing, igloo play, an ice bar and other beautiful snow made statues. The people working there were great with the kids and it cost only a little per visit.
The quality of the snow is like nothing in the world, perfect.
The lifts never crowded.
We used Furano Internstional Snow sports school, who I have reviewed elsewhere- amazing, friendly, helpful, couldn't recommend more highly.
The only negative is that if you wanted to go into town, the bus was infrequent and the taxis were costly. Town is not a super place for visiting, but it is not catering for western tourists, so you can't complain when the resort is so lovely.

“Away from the crowds”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

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.
