Visitor Reviews of Furano

Powdah to the People from Australia writes:

Furano grows on you. We ended up with positive reflections on this place, as a whole. Like many snow fields in Hokkaido, it needs new snow to keep the skiing interesting. There are lots of flats and basically the bottom half of the mountain is no more than gentle cruise. The snow quality can be ridiculously good. In fact, on some powder days it was almost too light and no one needs fat/powder skis here (note: the gondola does not easily accommodate more than mid fat skis). Aside from the "Premium" run (great with every new snowfall)', the Kitonomine side is rather lacking. Unfortunately, they limit the opening hours of the ""Premium" area so that after 2pm you're done. The Giant run offers something but it is short. The "romance" chairs scattered around this hill are just too slow. The lift infrastructure and more specifically the layout isn't the greatest especially for young kids at the bottom of Kitonomine area. Furano side struck me as having a slightly better layout and fall line runs. I rate this side better for kids that are learning or improving. Nothing notable about the night skiing, it's all very tame with nothing challenging accessible. Rope ducking was tolerated and I didn't experience or witness any rigid ski patrol. Food is typical Japan resort fare. It's tasty and wholesome and there are a variety of places in town and at Kitonomine (limited options at the New Prince complex, however). We stayed at the ski in-(just about) ski-out hotels. The rooms and facilities at New Prince are much nicer but it's a cattle market and quite impersonal. Much more friendly at the old Prince. Staff were much friendlier here maybe because their English was so much better. Furano is conveniently located; try other nearby resorts but most tend to be even smaller. Asahidake offers some powder play time. It has good facilities and you get about max 50 people skiing there. You will not remember Asahidake for its terrain either but the pow is memorable.
