Heavy snow on and off yesterday produced an accumulation of around 10cm yesterday. In terms of fresh snow on the mountain this morning, its more a light dusting, as the 10cm was groomed out overnight.

Yesterdays snow was lighter than any we have had in the last week. Getting off course you could easily find untracked powdery turns, however there is a hard crust under the service which is not yet covered. This means you need to be cautious with your turns through the fresh snow and the underneath layer can affect your control.

Heavy snow is forecast later this evening and into tomorrow. Temperatures have dropped again so we are well and truly passed that warm spell last week.

For non-skiers or snowboarders here in Furano, there is lots to do. Snowmobiling, dog sledding, horse sleigh rides, snow tubing, snow rafting, onsens, cheese factory, wine factory, kimono classes, arts and crafts village and the famous Asahiyama Zoo. I mention this because the snow in Furano attracts all types of visitors, some super keen to ski, some not so keen and so these are some of the activites in the snow in Furano for non-skiers.
