He made his World Cup debut in December 1986, finishing tenth in the slalom race in Madonna di Campiglio. He did not compete in any World Cup races in the 1987 calendar year, but returned in the late 1987/1988 season with a sixth and fifteenth place in Bad Kleinkirchheim and Oppdal, respectively, In the 1988–89 season Furuseth performed consistently well.

He also won the slalom run in the Alpine Combined Event at the FIS Alpine Skiing World Championships. In Furano, he finished second in the giant slalom, winning the slalom race two days later. One week later in Shigakogen, he won the giant slalom race and finished second in the slalom. As a result, he won the Giant Slalom Cup that year, though jointly with Pirmin Zurbriggen. In the Slalom Cup he finished third, and in the overall standings he finished fourth. He also competed at the 1989 World Championships, placing eighth in the giant slalom and sixth in the slalom. He was given the Norwegian Sportsperson of the Year award of 1989. The 1989/1990 season started equally well, with two-second places in August in Thredbo. He then won a giant slalom competition in Park City in November. Although that would be his only victory that season, he became runner-up in three further races, including the super-G race in January in Les Menuires. He again won the Giant Slalom Cup, finished second in the overall standings and second in the Slalom Cup. In the 1990/1991 season, he won competitions in Madonna di Campiglio and Kranjska Gora in December, and recorded three-second places, only one of them in giant slalom.

He performed slightly better in 1996/1997, with one third place in slalom in Shigakogen in March and a fourth place at the 1997 World Championships as highlights. From the 1997/1998 season, Furuseth competed exclusively in slalom. He opened with a thirteenth place in Park City in November, but improved gradually until reaching third in Kitzbühel in January. Then, in February he won a silver medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics, only defeated by fellow countryman Hans Petter Buraas. A World Cup victory in Yongpyong in March rounded off a successful season. A mediocre 1998/1999 season followed, but in 1999/2000 he fully reinvigorated his career, achieving two fourth places, one third places, three second places and one victory in the World Cup. The victory was his last race of the season, in Bormio in March. He came out of that season with a second place in the Slalom Cup. In the 2000/2001 season, he achieved a fifth place in Åre in February as his best World Cup result; he also he finished eleventh at the 2001 World Championships. Following the 2001/2002 season, where he only reached the top ten once during the season in the 2002 Winter Olympics, Furuseth retired from alpine ski racing. Throughout his career Furuseth won 6 World Cup victories in slalom and 3 in giant slalom, as well as the silver medal in slalom at the 1998 Winter Olympic Games.
