Furano resort review (Furano City, Hokkaido)

Furano City, Hokkaido

Powder + Sun = Fun
Me and my boys thoroughly enjoyed our morning off-piste run to the far right (skiers view) with some amazing powder turns in unexpected sunshine. However, we had a long run-out that included a short uphill step by a dam so we didn't repeat the run. The rest of the day was spent looking for powder with limited success as it seemed to be skied out. The lift infrastructure overall seemed decent. We only did one day which seemed sufficient to cover the mountain. With daily new snow it would warrant more days.
Date visited: From 29 January, 2017 To 29 January, 2017
Snow condition on visit: About 15cm new snow and sunny morning.
Things I liked: Lift infrastructure. Sunshine, which I haven't seen around Niseko before.
Things I didn't like: Wish there was more off-piste terrain (but maybe we just didn't see it).
