FURANO

A great resort for getting those ski and board legs back with long groomed cruisy slopes. Fabulous for beginner to advanced skiers and boarders, Also a great base for those wanting to explore more with backcountry trips to Asahidak and day trips to Kamui and Tomamu. Furano town is only a 10-minute bus ride away and allows you to experience some of the fabulous Japanese culture and hospitality of the Hokkaido region.

RECOMMENDATION

Take a guide and day trip to Asahidake ski resort an unpatrolled ski resort serviced by a gondola. This is for the advanced skier or boarder only and for that reason it is recommended you take a beacon, probe, and shovel. The snow there is unbelievable and because it is a volcano expect the smell of sulfur and steam pockets. A memorable experience in some magical powder.
