Very snowy in Furano

At 7.30am we had 29 centimetres of fresh snow in Kitanomine Village and it is still falling. There was a light easterly breeze at that time, also (coming from the Tokachidake region).

The resort has updated their snow depth measurement at the top to 95 centimetres and their depth at the bottom of the resort to 50cm. Rings right with me.

We should see the sun on Tuesday afternoon but the forecast only has snow until then.

Not such a bad thing.

Photo 1 is Kitanomine gondola building. There is a resort behind it but the snowfall obscures it.
Photo 2 is the view back towards town. There is Furano behind it but the snowfall obscures that, too.

Furano Now ski lift operation notes:

New Furano Prince Hotel (known as Furano Zone) gondola is running and at least one lift. Lifts are now opening regularly. The Kitanomine side will be open on or before 18 November the way things are looking.
