Furano Ski Area reports that the Kitanomine Gondola will start operating today. This is a most welcome anouncement and gives access to a lot more terrain on the Kitanomine side side for intermediates and advanced skiers.

Giant and Wide will still remain closed on the Kitanomine side, but Dynamic will open and link up the front face. The weather is blue skies and sunshine at the moment but is expected to turn to snow during the day. Winds are moderate at lower levels, and expect strong winds around the top.

Hopefully the wind won't interfere with the season debut for the Gondola.

Operating lifts:
Kitanomine Gondola 9:00am-2:30pm
Kitanomine high speed quad 8:30am-3:30pm
Kitanomine #2 chair 8:45am-8:00pm
