Furano Resort opening Saturday as scheduled

At the close of last year, November 28 (this Saturday) was chosen for opening, weather willing, and the weather, we are pleased to report, has willed it. Lift passes are half price, too, which is nice.

Furano always opens first on the New Furano Prince Hotel side (where the Ningle Terrace cabin shops are and the Snow Night Fantasy land). They gradually open more and more lifts and runs until the full mountain (including the Kitanomine Zone) is operating two weeks later.

As ever, it is all completely weather dependent, but looking good so far.

This morning at 7am it was -15C at the base of the resort on the Kitanomine side and -16 at the Sorachi River crossing at 8am. That would put it about -20 at the top of the resort. Cold.

No new snow and no wind, it could warm up to 3C today which would help melt the base a bit, which in turn would help it stick around solidly. Today's forecast is for off and on snow flurries or rain showers. Either would be helpful in forming the base.

Photos 1&2 are of the resort this morning from Kitanomine Village.
