Welcome to Friday. Not only is it shaping up to be a great weekend here in Furano, it is going to be a great Friday as well. The main thing to be excited about is fresh snow, and yet again we have a nice fresh layer of 9cm that has fallen earlier this morning.

It is wintery cold sitting at around -6c at base at the moment but the thermometer is likely to rise a couple of degrees during the day. There is a light trickle of snow falling at the moment and this is forecast to continue right throughout the day. Actually the forecast for the next 6 days is showing continuous snowfall for Furano!

The Premium Zone is open today from 10:30-14:00 and that would be the place to be around the opening time to get some of that new snow in your face.

Important message:

We would just like to mention that we noticed some inaccuracies in the ‘observed snowfall’ number data that had been logged in some of the Furano reports over the last few weeks. It appears that there were a few (of course unintentionally) incorrect numbers added for this number, which represents the amount of snowfall observed at base areas.

We have made appropriate checks and adjustments and feel that these numbers have now been corrected.

It is of course very important to us that what is published on SnowJapan reports is accurate and as such would like to apologise for this situation. Thank you!
