Light and dry Central Hokkaido powder is what skiers and snowboarders come to Furano for. In fact, the snow here is often better than at the more well-known Niseko (and without the crowds of foreign visitors too). While there are some westerners on the slopes, Furano makes for a much more authentic Japanese experience.
