Unfortunately the weather guy was pretty accurate with the forecast yesterday with the resort and town being hit by moderate rainfall, strong winds and warm temperatures. It rained for the whole day turning the town into slush and the tropical blip brought the locals out to chip away at their driveways which is made much easier when it is warmer.

Now for the good news. Overnight, temperatures have returned to winter negatives and it is snowing moderately at village level. There has already been 6cm accummulation, and given the amount of precipatation there will be a lot more during today. The heaviest falls wil occur from late afternoon onwards.

There is a light to moderate wind at base level. Visibility is compromised today due to the heavy snowfall and low cloud rolling down the resort. Underfoot the slopes are going to be icy or frosty due to the thaw freeze we have just been through, however with all the new snow coming our we could be back to a powder base soon.

Just as this report going to post winds have picked up and currently the Furano Ropeway is on hold - the Downhill Romance Number 3 lift was on hold for a short while but back running... Best to check with the resort for the very latest if you plan on being out.
