Hokkaido Furano

If you’re planning a ski or snowboard vacation, Furano is where you find Japan’s ultimate snow—light, fluffy, sometimes even chest-deep. It’s because of the inland location. And there’s thirty feet of it per season. Another benefit of the location is more sunshine.Furano tramThe resort offers nine lifts (including a tramway), 23 runs and 3,100 feet of vertical.

Inbounds the runs at Furano are groomed, with plenty of cruisers for beginner to advanced level skiers. While the more adventurous, and powder-seekers, can go to nearby Ashahikawa and Kurodake for lift-served backcountry skiing. Off-piste is also available, with restrictions.
