Yesterday was an awesome powder day. The reported 20cm here was closer to 30cm on the mountain, and very light and fluffy. Easily the best day for fresh snow since Christmas.

For a few guests to Furano I have had met yesterday was a difficult day on the powder. It is a tough transition to move from being a groomed piste skier to a fresh snow and powder competent skier or snowboarder. The light snow yesterday in Furano is great to learn the art of powder riding, so hang in there; it will get easier.

With the recent storm the surrounding mountains Kamui, Tomamu and Asahidake all have solid bases now.

Furano is forecast for some heavy snow tomorrow afternoon with temperatures getting colder over the week.
