Chitose Airport and Sapporo

Airport ski shuttle buses operate a direct service from Sapporo New Chitose Airport (CTS) to the Furano Ski Resort throughout the ski season. Fresh Powder Apartments are perfectly located only 40 metres from the Naturwald Hotel bus stop, located just up the road from the Kitanomine Gondola. Advance bookings (at least 10 days ahead in most cases) are essential as buses may be full, or may be cancelled if there are no other bookings. Goodsports and Hokkaido Resort Liner operate a direct service from CTS International Airport. Customer service counters are conveniently located on the arrivals level of the airport with English speaking staff. The Chuo Bus company operates a year round service from the Sapporo train station to the #2 Bus Stop at JR Furano train station. As the JR Furano train station is located ten minutes from Fresh powder please be sure to advise us in advance if you intend to use the Chou Bus service. We offer a complimentary pick up for guests from JR Furano Station.

Asahikawa

The "Lavender-Go" bus is a local bus service going through downtown Furano, and connecting Furano to Asahikawa Airport and Downtown Asahikawa City. For guests of Fresh Powder, this service conveniently provides a direct connection from Asahikawa Airport to the Furano Naturwald Bus Stop, 40 m from Fresh Powder. This is a public route and does not take reservations; if the bus should be full, the operator will dispatch an extra vehicle. Please note that this bus is not always a coach bus, so you may need to take your luggage into the cabin.
