There is not too much to report this morning. Yesterday temperatures stayed borderline and were hovering around 0c in the middle of the day. Roads and paths are very very icy this morning so extra caution is needed for those driving or simply walking around the village. This morning there is only a dusting of new snow but temperatures are very cold. Moderate snowfall is expected today, so hopefully that will turn into something significant. The Kitanomine slopes are still very lightly covered and a major dump would be required before they could be opened.

Open trails:
Shirakaba
Spies (upper part only)
Sailer (upper part only)

Open lifts:
Downhill Romance #2 chair
Furano Ropeway
