Lets start with a quick overview of the mountain operation status. The Furano Zone is basically fully open with trails and lifts open allowing skiing all over that side of the mountain from top to bottom. Kitanomine is open but the skiing is extremely limited with the Gondola and front face closed. The Link chair and run are open meaning you can ski over from the Furano Zone to Kitanomine Zone. The situation is not well signposted or obvious on the Kitanomine side, but the gondola terminal building can be accessed and the ticket office inside there is operating.

There has been 2cm of snow since yesterdays report. It is warmer this morning at -3c and the temperature will rise above freezing around midday and then not freeze again until late evening.
