We've had such an unusually cold and snowy Spring this year that the mountain is still in excellent condition this deep into May. Furano Ski Resort has announced that they are extending the ski season to include next weekend! Normally the mountain shuts down after Golden Week, but this year they will close as scheduled for the 7th-10th and then open up the lifts for the last runs of the season on Saturday and Sunday (May 11th, 12th.)

There's still 120cm of snow on the slopes (60cm at the foot of the mountain), and it snowed all the way down in the village Thursday night. It's not exactly the high quality powder for which Furano is famous, but it is still very skiable. More snow is in the forecast for the higher elevations for today and tomorrow as well, as Winter slowly gives over to Spring. It's currently 7 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. It should stay cloudy and cool until tomorrow evening, when we get a chance for some precipitation. It will most likely be snow on the mountain, rain in the village.
