Furano resort up and running today

Sorry for the delay in reporting the weather to you - we were too busy skiing, a terrible excuse. Except not for us. We loved it.

Furano opened the resort this morning on the side accessible from the New Furano Prince Hotel. They always have a staged opening, and more lifts and gondolas will start operating gradually until the full mountain is humming in about two weeks.

There is about 60cm of snow up top which is a good base. We had considerable fluffy snow yesterday afternoon (following the morning's gluggy snowfall). Between natural melt, gluggy compression, and the fresh snow on top, 60cm is about right.

There was a very light breeze this morning at the base of the Kitanomine Zone, but up top just now, I didn't notice any wind.

Photo 1 is my usual 7am shot of the resort from Kitanomine Village.
Photo 2 was taken at about midday today. It's fresh tracks (and first tracks of the season) at Furano Resort.

Furano Now ski lift operation notes:

Yes. The Gondola near New Prince Hotel is operating and one chair lift midway down the upper section of the resort is operating. Possibly more, but that's what we just saw. We are checking.
