The town went through a significant rain event yesterday with rain falling for most of the day on the lower slopes but thankfully temperatures higher up were cold enough to ensure that the rain was snow.

We are certainly getting some varied weather at the moment and today we have woken up to find 13cm of fresh snow in the village. With warmer temperatures this is not the usual light dry Furano powder but instead reasonable heavy snow which is ideal for building up the base. The forecast is for coninuing snow today. Winds are moderate at base level and strong at the top of the resort.

Furano Zone is partially open with Furano Ropeway operating to upload and download skiers to and from the upper mountain. It is not possible to ski from the top to bottom of the mountain yet. The skiable lift is Downhill Romance no.2 chair and the skiable courses are the upper part of Sailer and Spies Course, and Shirakaba Course. Restaurant Downhill is open.

Kitanomine Zone is closed.
