A check of the mercury revealed -23c at the top of Furano and a more tropical -21c at base level. In short it is cold today and a hot coffee out of a vending machine to warm the hands every few runs will be a good idea.

The cold snap will continue for the rest of the week and it looks like there will be a bit of a dry spell with the next snow not forecast until Wednesday. The good news is we have beautiful blue skies and the cold is keeping the powder already on the ground in amazing condition.

The grooming team look to have done a fantstic job overnight and I will be ditching the powder skis and doing some serious carving today.
