The snow is here at last! What started off as a steady, light rain this morning transitioned over to all snow by noon down in the town. The mountain has been getting a healthy dose of the fluffy stuff since last night, and we are all hoping for some significant accumulation once this storm finally subsides. A few hours ago, the snow pack had worked it's way down to the last quarter of the mountain. With temperatures being much colder in Kitanomine than they are down here in the village, things are looking up for some significant snow fall totals for this weekend.

It's currently a chilly 1 C above freezing in the rest of Furano, which means that we aren't seeing snow piling up on anything but the tops of cars and the roofs of houses, but it's still a welcome sight this deep into November. Things have tapered off a bit for now, but this snow machine should continue to churn its way throughout the evening and into tomorrow morning. Temperatures will drop below freezing overnight with a forecast low of -3. Please take care out on the roads, especially if you haven't changed over to winter tires, as there should be plenty of ice bands forming now that the sun has gone down.

According to the weather report, we're looking at winter winter almost every day for the next week, so it's safe to say that the ski resort should be opening sometime soon!
