Birds chirping, roads melting, snow at 0 degrees Celsius....welcome to the first day of spring. It's time for a spring wax!

The mountain yesterday was very heavy and sticky down low. There was a fair bit of fresh snow, so there was untracked pretty much all day in parts, but the snow was heavy and it took a lot of effort. I wouldn't go as far as to say it was Spring Slush yet, but it is certainly not powder. Fresh snow in any conditions however makes for smooth turns, and they certainly felt smooth and bottomless yesterday.

All the snow on the roads has melted, and then excess water has frozen overnight so it's very slippery around town.

We have woken to snow falling this morning and the forecast is for snow through till late afternoon today. It is warm however, so you won't need too many layers out there.

Tonight in town is the FINAL cultural event of the year. Congratulations to the Tourist Association and all performers this winter season who have provided excellent entertainment all year. The Cultural Night has become an important part of the Furano Ski Holiday experience. Otsukaresama deshita.
