I have been out of Furano for a few days looking at some other ski areas. When I returned to Furano mid morning today it struck me just how much colder Furano was than the other places that I was visitng. This was confirmed by looking at the temperatures provided by the resort with -13c at base. I was hoping upon my return that the snow drought would have been broken, but unfortunately it hasnt been. The slopes are being protected by the cold temperatures but main runs are starting to get firm with plenty of traffic running over them but no fresh top ups. There is good news just around the corner though...the forecast is showing some significant precipitation tomorrow and if this comes through things will change from good to fantastic. Fingers crossed.
