Furano Snow Tours

Dan30/03/2019
I spent a week at Furano Snow Tours in the middle of February 2019 and it was an amazing week! The accommodations were modern and upscale! Small bed and breakfast style chalet just outside of Furano. They provided a delicious breakfast each morning before heading out into the snow along with a few dinners out during the week. Lovely place to stay!!

The skiing was spectacular!! Our guide was on top of the weather each day and he decided where to go based on the weather reports. He basically found us powder every day at a different resort!! The skiing was mostly in beautiful, gladed trees that were typically just outside the ski area boundaries. Not much effort to get to but full of fresh tracks! We did one full backcountry day at Tokachidake and that was super fun and hero powder!! Oh and the onsen each night was the best way to soak achy muscles from all the pow we slayed!!

I travelled solo to Japan and my biggest concern was not knowing the ability of the group I would be riding with. I'm sure it's different from group to group but I lucked out and was with a great group of folks who all rode equally as hard!! The stoke level was very high each day and I truly enjoyed the group dynamics that developed over the week!

Be sure to bring your touring gear though. A couple guys in our group had to rent touring skis for a day and they were not cheap.

I would highly recommend a trip with Furano Snow Tours! Best week of snowboarding ever!!

really great experience

My mate (a Snowboarder) and i (Skier) had a really great time within Furano Snow Tours. The Lodging was really great. We were accommodated in the house next to Kens house. The house was build like a hotel with 4 different rooms and enough space for everyone. The constructions of the hotel were just finished in 2016 so it was very new and modern and the rooms are set up in a style i like.

Our Guide's name was Allan. he drove us around and showed us the different resorts and backcountry possibilities within the resorts. The Guiding and Backcountry program was diverse and adjusted to our needs and wishes.

Also the evening programm with the included dinners were really fun. At one evening we went out for karaokee with the guides and on our last evening we went out in a bar for dancing and drinking.

I highly recommend Ken & Allan at Furano Snowtours for people who also want a great japan experience beside the skiing activities.
