Saturday saw snow dumping down very heavily and about 4cm was deposited in an hour. Unfortunately the snow stopped quite suddenly. Later Saturday evening the rain that was forcast hit Furano and it rained heavily for a number of hours. This washed away a lot of snow around the village. On Sunday temperatures were very cold and because of the rain the roads, footpaths and slopes became extremely icy. Locals were trying to keep off the roads due to the extreme nature of the conditions.

Overnight we were blessed with 15cm of fresh powder snow in the village and about half as much again on the upper slopes. This is real good quality snow and for the first time this year we can truely say that winter has arrived. The roads and slopes are still very icy and slippery though under the layer of fresh snow.

Today Furano Ropeway and Downhill Romance Lift #2 are operating. It is now possible to ski from the top of Furano Ropeway to the bottom of the resort. The resort's report mentioned grass and rocks coming through the snow cover, but first hand reports have said this is overstated and that there is not a lot to worry about.

The Sailer Course is the only course open at the moment. Given last nights snow and the forecast for the rest of the week (which is for more snow) it shouldn't be long before we see more of Furano Zone open.
