The snowfall from Sunday evening was consolidated during the day yesterday and as a result Kitanomine Zone will open from 9:00am this morning.

For today, only the quad lift will be operating in Kitanomine giving access to the trails on the lower half of the mountain. This is essentially beginner terrain, so for those looking for more challenging runs, Furano Zone will be the place to head. Not a particularly cold day at the moment, and no wind, so be careful not to over dress.

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
Kitanomine high speed quad 9:00am-3:30pm
