Furano Ski Resort (xǖXL[, Furano Skijō) is one of Hokkaido's famous snow resorts. Located in a town known for its flowers and television dramas, the resort offers an exciting attraction for the cold winter months. It is a good place for a multiday family snow trip as there are lots of varied runs and other family oriented snow attractions.

The ski resort consists of two connected peaks, each offering long, fast runs that have been used for World Cup races. There are also a number of wider, gentler slopes suitable for beginners. For the more advanced or adventuresome, there are terrain parks, downhill courses and a half pipe.

In addition to skiing and snowboarding, Furano Ski Resort offers a Family Snowland where you can try other snow activities, such as snow rafting, snowmobiling, parasailing and dog sledding.

At the base of the ski resort stand two large Prince Hotels with rear entrances leading directly into the ski area. Furthermore, there are lots of small pensions, family run lodgings with Western style rooms that resemble B&Bs and are a very pleasant and reasonable way to stay in Furano.
