Temperatures have plummeted through the afternoon hours as a passing rainstorm sweeps through the area. We hit a high of 22 at noon today, but we're already headed back down to the single digits. We saw a lot of rain throughout the area today, but it was very Spring-showery like with plenty of breaks between downpours. The good news that it looks like the rain is over for the next several days, so we should see a beautiful start to Golden Week. As tomorrow is a holiday for many people across Japan, you can expect quite a few people to be out there taking advantage of one of the few places you can still ski a whole mountain from top to bottom this late in the season.


Here's the latest piste information for Furano Ski Resort.
