About Furano Ski Resort

Around 2-2.5 hrs drive from Chitose Airport, depending on the weather. This world-class ski area is regarded as having the lightest and driest powder in Japan delivering an average of 9m of snow. An ideal destination for families and offers a quieter more relaxed atmosphere than other resorts. Known for its stable weather and bluebird days, the perfectly groomed runs await beginners and intermediates; while more advanced skiers can challenge themselves on the off-piste powder areas and steeps.
