It is snowing heavily here in Furano with monstrous snow flakes belting down as I write this. With 28cm of fresh snow on the ground conditions on the mountain will be awesome today. Shoveling the snow this morning I noticed that the quality is far lighter than we have had recently. The rate of precipition will ease up but continue through today and tomorrow. Temperatures will rise to a relatively warm -4c maximum. There still hasn't been any announcement from the resort about opening up more lifts.
