It's another absolutely beautiful day in Furano. The severe cold we've had all week has thawed somewhat today, bringing up afternoon temperatures to a lovely -4. We received around 3cm of new snow overnight, not much, but the it's the most we've seen in days. The forecast is calling for more snow this afternoon and into early evening, but it doesn't seem to be happening out there. Skies are party cloudy, making for some spectacular views up on the mountain of the valley below.

We haven't seen too much powder lately, but the snow conditions are still quality in places.

A lot of special events are happening this weekend. There will be a Taiko demonstration tonight at 6pm, followed by rides in a fire truck ladder, and then a firework display from 9:10pm. On top of that, tomorrow is Treasure Hunt Day out on the ski slopes! Little egg-like capsules will be buried in random places around the mountain. A ribbon will be attached to each capsule. If you find one, take the contents to the Board of Tourism office to claim your prize!

Happy Winter Sporting!
