The was only a light dusting of snow in Furano since the last report was posted yesterday morning. Conditions are clear this morning with cloud settling on the peak of the resort but below that visibility is good. For the rest of the week we are expecting only light snowfalls on and off. There is still no word from the resort about Kitanomine open. School groups are starting to arrive to stay on the Kitanomine side, and with those slopes not open yet they will be doing their skiing on the Furano side which will mean quite a few people on the slopes suddenly.

The following courses are expected to be open today:
Technical
Panorama
Spies
Sailer
Prince
