Yesterday's epic powder conditions will probably be etched in the memory of many as the best day of their ski holiday in Furano. There are still plenty of powder stashes out on the mountain, so if you couldn't make it yesterday then today is still not too late.

There is a light wind around the base and this increases towards the tops. The wind will reduce as the day progresses. Temperatures are relatively warm with -2c at base and we hope they don't break 0c, which according to the mountain forecast they wont. It is overcast with some very light snow falling at the moment.

This evening another significant snowfall is expected and temperatures tomorrow will be a lot colder again.
