The snow is coming down at a steady, even pace in Furano this morning. There was a bit of a lull overnight, but the powder picked up this morning and looks like it will continue on through the rest of the day. It's light and dry powder snow, with 10cm+ (more in places, especially on the upper half of the mountain) since yesterday's post.

Overnight lows were relatively mild at -10C, and it's currently warmed up to the -7 mark. However, with all this snow and cloud cover, things won't be getting too much warmer this afternoon. Winds are light to nonexistent, meaning that the powder is falling straight down and piling up nicely, making for some great runs this morning.

The forecast calls for this weather to continue throughout the day and then taper off towards the later evening. Snowfall totals are completely subjective to upper atmosphere wind conditions that are constantly changing, so you can expect the occasional break from the snow. For those of you in the market for fresh tracks and fluffy powder, today is a good day to be out on the mountain.

*The Giant Course in Kitanomine has been closed off for a ski competition this morning. It will open back up as soon as the competition is over later today.
