Furano review by Simon
As others have stated Furano is a great resort for piste skiing with immaculate grooming and long runs.

It is not flat like much of Niseko.

The great powder is often ruined by excessive grooming.

However much of the terrain is roped off for no apparent reason except to entertain the ski patrol in their cat + mouse game.

Many duck the ropes but why should you have to!
Date visited: From February, 2006
Snow condition on visit: Varied from deep light powder to hard pack
Things I liked: Good lift system,constant pitch with few flat areas excellent restaurants,not crowded
Things I didn't like: Irritating J pop music + ski patrol
