They say that March comes in like a lion, and last night would be no exception. Howling winds and heavy snows pummeled Furano from yesterday afternoon until the winter storm died down early this morning. 15cm+ of the finest fresh fell over a few hours, but winds upwards of 7m/s with stronger gusts were whipping the newly fallen snow into deep snow banks and cornices. Please be careful out on the mountain today, as some places that may look to be completely normal are actually deep pockets of wind-driven snow.

Things have quieted down for now, and the sun has even come out a little bit. The forecast for today called for the huge storm that moved its way across the Furano Valley last night to linger on through the day today, but it looks like the worst is over. Expect some lingering snow showers for the remainder of the day, but we should see nothing like the debilitating heavy wind/snow combination we saw last night.

Temperatures are in the low minus single digits, and we just may approach the freezing mark today. The resort has raised the official snow depth to 190cm, and today looks like a great day to get out there. Happy skiing, and enjoy all that fresh snow!
