Furano Ski Area is located in Furano City, the central Hokkaido. This is one of the best ski area as Niseko and the world famous one. More than 30 years ago, FIS World Cup Alpine Ski Competition had been held here every year. It is very nice and powder snow such as Niseko. So to speak, every where powder snow in Hokkaido. Recently Snow board World Cup has been held here in February presented by Dydo Drinko. Scenery is so nice and beautiful that you can see the Tokachi mountain range and Furano Basin. This is the Hokkaido and you can enjoy not only lavender in summer but also snow in winter. Furano makes visitors fun all the year. Ski Area is managed by Prince Hotels. But there are many inns and pensions that are reasonable price and located at the foot of mountain. You can access the slope easier.
