Mild day, mostly sunny today.

Meant to go night skiing last night for the opening but didn't quite make it. Friends went and enjoyed it very much. Fourth lift now open on Furano resort so that's good, and that's most of the Furano Zone open now bringing it to about 35% of the whole resort. Highest peak now skiable - that's the lift that opened yesterday.

Was zero degrees Celsius at 9am which is pretty mild but fine for the piste condition.

In more horrific news, the forecast said last night that Tuesday's snow might have some rain in front of it, which would not be any fun. But Mother Nature is a minx so let's just wait and see what she does.

No winds today. I have been out in the region and the visibility is beautifully clear.

Furano Now ski lift operation notes:

Four of ten now operating. Most of Furano Zone open. Kitanomine Zone may open by 18 December but it's weather dependent so difficult to guarantee.
