There is another 12cm of snow to report since yesterday's update.

The weather during the day has been high thin cloud allowing a good amount of sunlight through. Needless to say the snow conditions on the open runs are very good for this time of year. With all this new snow hopefully the resort can open up another lift or some additional terrain for the coming weekened.

Furano Zone is open with the Furano Ropeway operating for uploading and downloading to the upper mountain.

The open courses are D1 (800m), D2 (740m) and A1 (850m).

At this stage is is not possible to ski back the the base area, so you will be required to use the Ropeway to return.

Furano Now ski lift operation notes:

Furano Zone is partially open.
