Furano

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 nine metres.  There are great cruising runs for beginners and intermediates alike, and for the advanced skier or boarder there is some 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.
