Apologies for a delayed report today. The big news of the day is that Kitanomine is now open, although just a partial opening for now.

The Kitanomine Swift Lift #1, Kitanomine Romance Lift #2 and Link Lift started operation today. The front face of Kitanomine is not skiable but the Link Run is open and so is the Rinkan Course which takes you back to the Kitanomine quad lift. People staying in Kitanomine can now use the lift system to get over to the Furano Zone, as well as ski the Rinkan course in Kitanomine.

The following courses are expected to be open today:
Technical
Panorama
Spies
Sailer
Prince
Todomatsu
Link Course
Rinkan Course
