Furano was hit by a serious snow storm last night that dumped another 40cm at village level.

This has changed things dramatically and we expect more of the mountain to open up over the rest of the week. The most significant change for today is that Downhill Romance #3 chair is now operating which opens up access to more challenging terrain. The snow that has fallen is very heavy compared to the normal Furano light powder and is perfect for bulking up the base.

Operating lifts:
Furano Ropeway 8:30am-3:10pm
Downhill Romance #2 chair 8:45am-3:10pm
Downhill Romance #3 chair 9:00am-3:00pm
Prince Romance 8:30am - 8:00pm

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