Furano Ski Grounds


A bustling country town in the centre of Hokkaido, famous for its Lavender Fields . Furano is also rated as having the most vertical metres to ride on the island. With below average temperatures, it also has potentially the driest powder, referred to as Diamond powder. Furano will become your best friend

The two ski areas Kitanomine and Furano (New Prince Hotel) are connected by the ‘Link’ lift. Other than the New Prince hotel, the Ningle Terrace (arts & craft stores and tube ride), and the best ramen restaurant (in my opinion), there is not much else around on the Furano (New Prince) side. The Kitanomine side is more of a ski village with restaurants, the only pub with nightlife (open from 6pm) and Apres Ski cafe / bar (close by 7pm) near the base of the mountain. The great thing about Furano is that it is a small city with a ski village and ski resort attached. There are plenty of great restaurants and places to hang out after dark in town a short taxi ride away.

What To Expect

Longer than average runs by Japanese standard. Hidden gems in the Back country and spaced out runs without major bottlenecks flooding any specific areas in bounds. Less Crowds and lots of Secret Stashes

"Exceeded all expectations"

I’m so pleased we found Pat because it absolutely made our trip. He’s such a friendly guy as are the small team that work with him… he snowboards and most of the test of the team ski so we were well catered for and I was relieved that he made allowances for our mixed abilities.
