There is a light dusting of snow at base level. The temperature is -3c as I post this report and will rise to -1c during the day.

Today's weather will be overcast and there may be some snow mid afternoon. The good news is that snow is on the forecast for the next few days, so hopefully there is something substantial in there.

For an opening weekend the conditions are pretty good on the two open courses. There are patches where dirt and stones are getting churned up though.

Furano Zone is open with the Furano Ropeway operating for uploading and downloading to the upper mountain.

The open courses are D1 (800m) and D2 (740m).

At this stage is is not possible to ski back the the base area, so you will be required to use the Ropeway to return.

Furano Now ski lift operation notes:

Furano Zone is partially open.
