The Ski Resort

Furano is one of the most famous and well-known ski resorts in Japan.
© Japan National Tourism Organization Furano is one of the most famous and well-known ski resorts in Japan.

Located in the center of the island Hokkaido, Furano is one of Japan's most famous ski resorts. Beginners and adcanced skier alike will find suitables runs according to their skill level. 24 runs are found in the area, the longest of them is four kilometers (2,5 miles) long. Especially powder fans will enjoy the slopes here. Due to its location in the center of the island, Furano benefits from Siberian wind systems. The winds coming from the ocean drop light and dry snow over the Northern island, making it a paradise for deep snow skiers. 

The area is divided into the Furano Zone and the Kitanomine Zone. A beginner-level run and a common lift connect the two zones. Both are open until 8 pm and offer lighted runs for nightskiing
