Furano is situated on the island of Hokkaido and is well known for the light and dry snow that falls throughout the winter season – an average of 9 metres. There are great cruising runs for beginners and intermediates alike, and for the advanced skier or boarder there is a huge variety of challenging terrain to suit. The town of Furano, approximately one kilometre from the ski base, is a typical Japanese town mostly untouched by modern influences.
