Welcome back to all those searching for Furano snow information that is independent and reliable.

It has been a slow start to winter this year with the warm weather from Autumn persisting much longer than is normal. It would be reasonable to expect that the first snow in the Kitanomine ski village would have fallen about a month ago, however the first snow to fall and settle on the ground has just happened today.

In the last few days there has been light snow on the upper mountain of the ski area that has stuck around, and with todays snowfall I would expect the mountain to remain white from top to bottom from now on.

Wintery temperatures are forecast for the rest of the week along with further snow.

Furano Ski Resort has a proposed opening date of 24 November but unfortunately it looks unlikely they will be able to open that soon, unless a huge amount of snow arrives over the next few days.
