Furano's snowfall continues to tick over and we have had a further 5cm this morning. I have just been to check the mountain out and at the top of the resort there is closer to 10cm of fresh. In the village it is relatively calm but there is a light breeze on the mountain. It is snowing lightly and looks like it will continue to do so all day. Until 9:00am there was flat light all over the mountain making ground definition challenging, but the thin cloud cover has started to break and let light through, improving visibility considerably.
