Warm, Sun, Clouds, some Rain, but Kitanomine OPEN

Unfortunately, it has warmed up again here in Furano. The low temp last night was a miserable 3 C, and the high today will be 4 C. It was 5 C yesterday, and there was some rain overnight.

So there has been some damage to the base, particularly in Kitanomine, which is starting to have brown spots again. Some snow is forecast for tonight, nothing on Friday, and then snow is forecast EVERY DAY from Saturday to Wednesday. So my fingers are completely crossed for that to come true.

The Big News today is that the Kitanomine side is OPEN! Yeah. OK, it's on a limited basis, with the skiing taking place on top, and only one run down to the bottom, but it's a good sign nonetheless. We'll take it!

Think more snow, and think cold temps.
