It is looking like another great day to be on the slopes. There is high cloud casting a shadow directly over the slopes, but from the base of the resort through to the Tokachi mountains it is blue sky and sunshine. There is no new snowfall to report for today. Looking ahead there is a significant snow front heading this way and the forecast is showing it will bring heavy snow on Thursday and Friday to the upper mountain. The bottom of the mountain may catch some rain as temperatures at low elevation look like they will be positive...lets hope they dip down so the village gets hit with the snow as well.

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