Furano Ski Resort

Hokkaido, Japan

Furano ski resort has long groomers that will test even those with the most conditioned legs which is one of the reasons it is sometimes utilized in the ski world cup comps. It also has a big vertical, one of the biggest in Hokkaido with both a ropeway and gondola to get you nearly all the way from top to bottom. It has 2 sides, the Furano side and the Kitanomine zone joined only at the top and the Furano side having the higher altitude. Furano allows very little off piste skiing unless you are on an organized tour, and the patrol are well known for chasing down offenders who jump ropes (and there are ropes everywhere) and confiscating lift passes. You have been warned. Being well away from the coast it sees a lot less snow than coastal resorts such as Niseko so it is probably not going to as popular with powder hounds. On the upside, this resort sees very few foreigners so has a real authentic Japanese vibe to it. Both of the multi day, multi resort tours on the left often visit Furano. 10 day Hokkaido Unplugged tour 11 day Ultimate powder tour" tour
