Welcome to the start of Golden Week holidays. The crowds haven't reached Furano yet but the holiday weather certainly has. Temperatures will be cranked up to a very pleasant level with the maximum off 22c expected around noon. Currently it is 13c at base and 9c at the top of the resort. Snow conditions are spring snow getting slushy early on due to not only the temperature, but full sunshine from early morning. The key will be not to overdress, but having said that I have spotted several out of towners walking around in jackets, hats and facemasks. Either they plan to sweat it out or will be removing some of that pretty quickly.
