Furano

Hokkaido, Japan

ON THE GROUND REPORT

Monday, March 18: It's blue sky and decent snow. A friend (who is a trained guide) went backcountry from Furano resort yesterday and his photo was waist deep powder. Not joking. I was not there but the evidence is compelling. With such an early spring it's more critical than ever to have a good guide in the backcountry -- we've closed up for that but there are outfits still operating. One chair has closed on the Furano zone but it doesn't impact piste access. From Lucy Morrell at Alpine Backcountry Rental, we shall see you in Furano!
