Studio / 1 Bedroom / 2 Bedrooms / 3 Bedrooms / 5 Bedrooms

A range of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments - along with a five bedroom chalet - make up this newly renovated former ski lodge, which has a great location directly opposite the slopes of Kitanomine. The design is slick and modern but still cosy, and the apartments are kitted out with everything you’ll need – from supremely comfy beds and sofas to laundry facilities and well equipped kitchens. Layouts are generally open-plan, and lounges have TVs and - in larger apartments - log burning fires.

Generously sized, Fresh Powder Apartments are a good bet if you want to expand a little beyond a small hotel room. We’d always recommend making the most of Kitanomine’s array of evening options, but at Fresh Powder you’ll also have the option to stay in – and you can just amble across the road to the slopes in the morning.

Probably our favourite place to stay in Furano.

In Kitanomine, actually overlooking the slopes. They descibe themselves as skifront apartments….this simply translates to mean that you are almost ski in, ski out. Just 400 metres from the gondola and 300 metres from the Prince Hotel.  However, the chalet five-bedroom is several hundred yards away, set back from the slopes.

Distances to:

Ski Lifts: 400 metres

An indicative cost for a Studio Apartment during the lowest season would be ¥16,000 (£95) per night, rising to circa ¥90,000 (£525) per night for the Five Bedroom Chalet during the peak periods.
