Spring skiing?? More like summer skiing! Temperatures actually hit the double digits in Furano, thanks to sunny weather all morning and afternoon. Superlative spring conditions prevailed at the top. With no wind and nothing but blue, blue skies, the biggest worry today was sunburn!

Although we have had a few sprinkles of snow, the entire course was softened pack. Runs were quite fast in the morning, particularly Panorama. Things slowed down a bit from the afternoon as conditions turned a bit slushy.

The Furano zone is still in great shape, with absolutely no melt-through on the course. Slopes are uncrowded, with virtually no waits and the Ropeway not filling completely even at peak times.

By 4 pm, skies had become overcast, with light snow at the top and light rain at ground level.

Next time we get weather like this, I am going to take a beach chair, a parasol, and a beer up there...
