Furano looking stunning and the snow is great.

Blue sky today, was shaping up bluebird but a few white and fluffies around. The snow is divine with about 6cm falling in Kitanomine Village and about knee deep on the side country on the resort. Nine of ten lifts now operating so the only one we are waiting on is the Kitanomine Gondola. Sun forecast today and tomorrow so let's hope for the weekend but the fact that Kitanomine Zone is open means it's easy and convenient to get to Furano Zone.

If you have accommodation booked in Kitanomine Zone, it means you do not have to get yourself to Furano Zone. If your accommodation is in town, you only have to make your way to Kitanomine Zone (which is actually walking distance, just not a fun walk carrying skis if you are comfort inclined).

Light breeze today, -2C in town at 10am. Resort listing the base as 95cm with 10cm of fresh. That would be erring on the low side which is always my preference with such things.

Photo 1 is the resort from the Furano Town side of the Sorachi River this morning. Sorry if I led you up when I parked my car right there to take it...

Photo 2 is what is open on the resort today. More lifts but not much more terrain. We need the gondola to run to open up the ski runs in the Kitanomine Zone.
