High Season Dates

2 Feb 2109 – 10 Feb 2019

High Season Products

Due to the increased demand for our products during the high season periods we offer a slightly different product line up to help maximize the time our instructors are available for our guests. We only offer 2 hour and 2.5 hour lessons in the afternoons during this time.

All Day Private Lessons 
5 hour FISS premium private¥40,000
6 hour FISS private 9am-4pm¥48,000

with our 5 hr all day program you are booking the instructors time for the day (up to 5 hours of teaching time). We allow you to choose the starting time of your lesson and organize your day to suit your preferences. Want a later or earlier lunch etc… no problem

Some of our guests last year requested that we add a 6hr lesson to our line up. On their request we will run both 5 and 6hr privates this year. Due to time limitations in fitting a 6hr lesson into the day this product will start at 9am and finish at 4pm. Guests will still be able to choose when they wish to go for lunch.

Ski & Snowboard Rental

Furano has a few ski & snowboard rental options. Depending on where you are staying, some rental companies maybe more convenient  than others.

Harro Snowsports is an Australian rental company that has shops in Jindabyne and Furano. Their staff are fluent in English and have a good range of equipment. Their shop is a short walk down the road from the Kitanomine Gondola Building. http://harrosnowsports.com.au


Good Sports is a another good option for guests staying in Kitanomine or locations other than the New Furano Prince Hotel. They have a shop opposite the Kitanomine Gondola Building and offer a discount for people booking their rental in advance on the internet:    https://www.goodsports.co.jp/white_eng/rental/



If you are staying in the New Furano Prince hotel, the easiest rental option is probably to rent directly from the Atomic rental shop in the hotel. They also have other shops dotted around the resort.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that things don’t always go to plan.

Obviously we understand if you need to cancel for any reason (unforeseen events etc), provided you let us know 7 days prior to your booking start, we will happily reimburse your full lesson fees.

Once it gets closer to the booking the harder it is for us to resell those time slots missed.
With this in mind if you cancel:
6 days prior to your booking we will return 80% of your lesson fees.
5 days prior to your booking we will return 60% of your lesson fees.
4 days prior to your booking we will return 40% of your lesson fees.
3 days prior to your booking we will return 20% of your lesson fees.
At 48 hours or less from your lesson start time, it is extremely difficult to get alternative bookings at such short notice, so unfortunately you will not be eligible for any refund as we will use the fee to recuperate the instructors wage cost.

In the event of inclement weather:
Full refunds will be issued if, for reasons such as bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances,
Furano Ski Area is forced to close it’s facilities for the period of time that your lesson was due to take place.
If it is only a temporary closure of facilities we may offer you a choice between postponing the lesson (if available) or issuing you a refund.
If appropriate facilities are available for us to conduct your lesson then your lesson will go ahead as scheduled. We won’t for example issue a refund, just because its snowing.
