ABOUT Furano

Dec - April

Furano, located on the North Island of Hokkaido is one of the best all round resorts in Japan. Furano is made up of two zones, the Kitanomine Zone and the Furano Zone, both offering a variety of terrain and accommodation options. The town of Furano is only 5 minutes away and is home to an array of restaurants and bars for once you’re off the mountain. Furano caters for every level of skier and snowboarder and receives amazing snow quality, lighter and fluffier than other resorts as it’s more inland. Furano also has more bluebird days than other Hokkaido resorts, allowing you to enjoy spectacular views up on the mountain.
