You would think we were entering the month of February given the temperature that has been thrown at us this morning. -20c in the village and -21c at the top of the resort! So if you woke up and felt chilly chances are it is because it is cold rather than you have caught a cold. In classic Furano style those cold temperatures are combined with clear weather and plenty of sunshine.

On the snow front there has been a light 2cm dusting in the village overnight. No further snow is expected today. Tomorrow will be a little windy but the snow will start again and should fall continuously through until Saturday night.

The slopes are in excellent condition. Giant has opened today fot the first time this season, which is interesting as there wasn't any significant snow yesterday to change things significantly. All courses are now open on Furano Ski Area except Premium.
