Most of the lifts were modern. There were two single seat chairs. Here is the cute link lift to take you from Kitanomine zone to Furano zone.

Ramen restaurant. This very small hotel with restaurant and ice cream shop downstairs, was one of my favourite eating places.

The restaurant upstairs here was also one of my favourites.

Had a fabulous great value meal at this downtown restaurant, even though they did not speak any English or have any English menu.

For New Years Eve we had a flare skiing display and spectacular fireworks.
