Our second stay at New Prince Furano, having returned to Furano after our trip in Dec 2011.
Just as before- a great hotel, many restaurant options, spacious rooms (this time our 8th floor room overlooked the ski slopes), friendly, helpful staff, and great snow and slopes. We returned partly because we have a three month old baby along and want something familiar (being out in the sub 0 temp with a baby is not an option) so we returned, to no regrets.
Through an excellent ski op, we had an early bird special deal with free transport to and back from chitose airport, free buffet breakfast (delicious as always-- but I do miss last year's grated yam). We skied for 6 full days.
This time, we went to kitanomine more often, making use of the free hotel shuttle between the two prince hotels.
We also had some dinners in the hotel, and some in furano town (a taxi costs about ¥2000 one way. Or take the shuttle ¥500 return per person).
Will return, maybe in a few years time.More
