Today is a total contrast to yesterday as the blue skies have given way to grey overcast conditions. The thermomter indicates 0c in the village but it feels much colder than that with a light breeze whipping around. That light breeze will become strong as the day rolls on, and at the top of the mountain there may be strong winds up to gale level. With the warmer temperatures at base level some rain is expected so lets hope that that doesn't damage the lower slopes too much as they are progressing nicely at building up their snow cover. The upper mountain shouldn't see any of the rain and it should be snow falling instead.

Furano Zone is partially open with Furano Ropeway operating to upload and download skiers to and from the upper mountain. It is not possible to ski from the top to bottom of the mountain yet. The skiable lift is Downhill Romance no.2 chair and the skiable courses are the upper part of Sailer and Spies Course, and Shirakaba Course. Restaurant Downhill is open.

Kitanomine Zone is closed.
