Buying/ renting ski pants Furano



Travelling ( directly) from Australia to Furano ( via New Chitose) next Friday.

just tried on my skipants and they are pretty tight ( Oh dear!).

Nearest ski store here would be Newcastle 3 hours drive away and I’m working all next week.

Am I going to be able  buy ( or rent) Au women’s size 16 ( ouch)  pants in Kitanomine?

( I’ve been to Furano several times before although not for a few years and I don’t recall much in the way of ski shops , somewhat surprisingly)

Anyone know the answer?

Sorry don't know Furano but I am sure the people you are staying with would be able to point you in right directions.

Unless it was a trick question!   ;)

Have fun whatever up there, wish I was going.

Renting ski jackets and pants is pretty common at Japanese ski resorts. Maybe that is a good option? To take of the time pressure...
