Temperatures peaked at the freezing mark today, but those of you out on the piste probably noticed there's plenty of melting and refreezing going on, especially on the lower, shadier runs on the Kitanomine Side. The parts of courses exposed to the sun are on the whole soft and entirely skiable, but the shady side of the runs on the bottom half of the mountain are subject to a lot of refreezing, making them a bit brittle in places. The good news is, there's plenty of excellent quality snow to be had, if you know where to look for it. The top half of the resort is in good condition and is still thoroughly enjoyable.

It should be another seasonably cool night tonight, clear and cold with lows around -10, so expect more of the same tomorrow. It looks like there will be several chances for snow next week, the perfect thing to spruce up those runs.

During March there are race competitions being held on Furano Resort. The following courses are closed for the competitions:

Spies Course, closed March 5-11 & 25
Ropeway Course, closed March 5-11
