Powder fans I am back! Gray skies for the last two days mark a drastic change from the previous week of glorious sunshine. The slopes were sleety, miserable and damp yesterday, with today being a bit warmer but not much more pleasant.

Surprisingly despite all of the sun and drizzle, the resort is reporting that snow base at the peak has only decreased by 10 cm over the past 5 days. This is largely due to evening temperatures rapidly dropping back to freezing.

Most of the Furano Zone is still open -- over a third of all of Furano's skiable terrain. Run conditions at the top are as good as they can get for late April. The ski out back to the ropeway is a bit patchy and sluggish, but holding together thanks to the dedicated grooming crew.

It looks like more of the same tomorrow, with daytime temps not predicted to break the single digits. We are expecting the cold weather to continue, with Thursday night dipping to -5 before the cold front finally breaks, bringing a mix of sun and cloud for the weekend. Looks like rain (or maaayybe snow, we could get lucky) on Sunday.

Looking forward to a great ride out all the way to Golden Week.
