It is snowing at the moment and there has been another 5cm accumulation since the last report.

The new snow on the mountain will be wind affected so expect areas of significant accumulation in places. Due to moderate winds it is going to feel pretty cold out there... a face mask may be the order of the day.

Good news for beginners - the Prince Romance lift will start operation from today and this lift will also run through until 8pm for night skiing.

Operating lifts:
Furano Ropeway 8:30am-3:00pm
Downhill Romance #2 chair 8:45am-3:10pm
Prince Romance 8:30am - 8:00pm

Courses:
Sailer
Shirakaba (closed)
Spies (partially open) from top of Ropeway until bottom of Down Hill Romance #2 chair.
Prince Course
