It is an overcast day with a light wind blowing which is making things feel a bit on the cool side. Slope condition is soft spring snow over the entire mountain. Night skiing on the Furano side is now limited to the Prince Romance lift...so unless you are a beginner it is best to head to the Kitanomine side for some night skiing on the Kitanomine quad chair.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
