It is mostly cloudy today but the cloud is very high and there are numerous patches that are letting the lovely morning sun shine through. Yesterday, daytime temperatures went to around +5c and the snow ended up close to spring conditions. Overnight that has frozen, so things will be firm in the morning and once again softening up later as daytime highs will be well into positive territory again. Coverage on the slopes is amazing for this time of year and the run that was opened yesterday down to the base area is in really great condition. With the top chair open and the Ropeway skiable top to bottom, skier numbers although increasing are pretty nicely spread, so lift waiting times are not bad.

Furano Now ski lift operation notes:

Furano Ropeway 8:30am-15:00pm.
Furano Downhill Romance #2 chairlift 8:40am-15:00pm.
Furano Downhill Romance #3 chairlift 9:00am-15:00pm.
