Ski Holidays in Furano, Japan

Furano ski holidays take you to one of the world's best powder stashes. Situated in the middle of Hokkaido means that the epic amounts of snowfall are drier than Niseko or Rusutsu and powder skiing is virtually guaranteed.

Furano Ski Resort

Furano is one of the most famous resorts within Japan and has hosted several F.I.S. world cup skiing and snowboarding events. The resort has a real ski-town feel to it with great apres ski, snowmobiling and natural hot springs amongst the highlights. There is a fantastic selection of bars and restuarants on offer in Furano, with everything from sushi to steak on offer.

The skiing offers everything from pistes that are well suited for intermediates and novices through to the great backcountry at the nearby Ashidake mountain, which offers lift-served un-groomed terrain. There is also plenty of long cruising runs and there is more vertical gain than Niseko. The main reason to head to Furano is for the immense, light and dry snowfall that averages around 40ft a year. The best time to guarantee fresh powder is late December through to mid-March.

"Just home from Christmas in Val d'Isere... this was the best ski holiday I have ever been on. Val is stunning, the hotel fabulous, staff sensational and skiing out of this world. We booked through Iglu. They were fantastic. Peter had great ski knowledge, offered advice and went the extra mile. " - Pamela (Dec 2015)
