Yesterday saw continuous light snow fall with 4cm accumulation in the village and more at higher elevations. The snow was wet which is ideal for base building and was exactly what we needed. In the early hours of the morning strong winds passed through but have now reduced. At the moment it has stopped snowing, but the forecast looks promising with light snow forecast to fall contimuously through to Monday with some moderate falls Saturday night.

The new snow brings good news. Part of the upper mountain is open from today. Access to the upper mountain will be by Furano Ropeway, with Downhill Romance #2 chair operating for skiing. The skiable course will be the upper part of Sailer that runs next to Downhill Romance #2. In addtion to this the Prince Romance chair will be operating at the base.
