We bought a old staff lodge some years ago in downtown Tomamu and have had it refurbished over the last two years. Fire approval was the biggest hurdle (and not too cheap in the end!) but we are happy to say we are open for bookings for the 2019/20 winter. Its modeled on there ambience of an old style ski lodge, fully self catering with a great communal space, Dutch West log fire, new kitchen with oven, ski and waxing room and a great new bathroom. Won't suit everyone, max 10 people, need a car and fully self catering with a backcountry flavor but budget priced and close to Tomamu of course but also Sahoro with day tours possible to Furano and Tokachi. There is also some rarely skied and great backcountry in the local mountains. PM me for any details and a couple of pics here.
