FURANO - Japan’s Cultural Ski Destination
A culturally rich ski holiday awaits you in beautiful Furano. The mountain is a favorite with powder enthusiasts and resort skiers alike and has been host to 12 FIS World Cups. Due to a cool inland climate, the resort receives an incredibly light dry powder snow, and frequent bluebird days allow for spectacular views across the valley. Just below the slopes is a town steeped in tradition whose residents delight visitors with cultural music and theatrical performances in the many local restaurants and bars.
Two ski-in, ski-out Prince Hotels are located on the mountain, and the ski area shares a common lift pass with two nearby ski resorts. The town’s local English-speaking ski host volunteers happily share mountain secrets during tours of the slopes. For the more adventurous, try snowmobiling or backcountry skiing in the surrounding area.
