Furano Ski Resort Mark Bulley
Furano is one of Japan’s most famous ski resorts, although relatively little is known about it outside of Japan.
Situated in the middle of Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island, 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.
After a big snow fall there is often untracked powder for days.
Furano is one of Japan’s most famous ski resorts, although relatively little is known about it outside of Japan. The Furano Ski area is made up two zones, the Kitanomine zone (Mid. Dec – Late Mar) and the Furano zone (Late Nov – Early May). 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 is home to a wide array of restaurants and bars and all the services you would expect to find in a town. Both of these 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 meters making it one of the steepest mountains in Hokkaido.
