Furano is one of Japan’s most famous ski resorts, although it is little-known outside of Japan. Located in the middle of Hokkaido, Furano benefits from Siberian storm systems that pass over the Sea of Japan and then dump the lightest and driest snow in all of Hokkaido – and 9 meters of it each season.

The Furano Ski area is made up two zones, the Kitanomine zone and the Furano zone. Both areas have a variety of accommodation options and the town of Furano is only a 3 min shuttle from the Kitanomine zone and a 6 min shuttle away from the Furano zone, and has a good variety of restaurants and bars, and all other facilities. Both of the ski zones can be accessed on the one pass and are serviced by 11 lifts.

Furano has an abundance of varied terrain for every level of skier and snowboarder, and a vertical drop of over 950 metres – making it one of the steepest mountains in Hokkaido. Bordered by Hokkaido’s stunning Daisetsu-zan National Park, Furano is truly a world-class resort.

Night skiing – possible until 8pm on both mountains – is a spectacular way to spend an evening. Whilst cruising down the well-lit slopes, enjoy the amazing views of the area coming to life at night. On both sides of the mountain you can ski almost to the door of some bars.
