***Kitanomine Gondola closed***
***Furano Downhil Romance #3 chair closed***

When I awoke this morning there was no sign of any snowfall happening, however in the last hour the forecasted snow has arrived and so far has accumulated to 2cm. A lot more is snow is expected from this afternoon and will continue through Saturday.

The winds have also arrived and at base. They are moderate already and very strong further up the resort. The resort has advised the Kitanomine Gondola and Furano Downhill Romance #3 chair (thats the double at the top of the Furano Zone) will not operate due to wind. However there is still plenty of great terrain that can be skied off the operating lifts.

Temperatures were -4c at the base of the resort earlier this morning, but at base it is now 0c. Rain is forecast at village level from this afternoon due to the warm temperatures, so I really hope they are wrong on that one and we do get snow. However above base level it will definitely be snow that falls. The winds should ease by Sunday morning.
