Furano review
I visited Furano last christmas and have just booked again for this year...I LOVE THIS PLACE.

I wouldn't class myself as the best rider in the world but I have been to many resorts in Gunma, Nigata, Nagano, Tochigi, Fukushima and Hokkaido in 9 years of riding in Japan and out of every resort I have I have ever been to FURANO rocks!

There are some great powder courses in Furano which, after a heavy snowfall, provide great powder skiing. These areas are not groomed during the night and hence allow skiers to get a great powder experience first thing in the morning after fresh snow has fallen.

If you dont like the fact that theres no off piste... look into taking a day trip to Kurodake.
Date visited: From December, 2007
Snow condition on visit: GREAT
Things I liked: Friendly people, Great Views, Great Runs, Cheap!!
Things I didn't like: Not so much to do at night.
