This morning, the village was awakened early by sounds of shovels scraping off the 15-20cm that fell between yesterday morning and the wee hours of today (with most likely much more significant amounts on the mountain.) Well, maybe not the sound of my shovel, but at least my neighbors were at it very early. Yesterday saw buckets of snow poured all over town, and we are just now digging out. Perhaps some of you like to ski or board on a hefty layer of fresh snow. If so, then today is your day. With -5 temperatures making it feel like summer out there, a few hours of sunshine, relatively gentle wind conditions, and all those mounds of the white stuff as far as the eye can see, this morning the conditions are close to perfect.

We should be in for another round of steady snow come 3:00pm today, but the temperatures will stay fairly consistent throughout the day. This is the best day for winter sports we have seen in Furano for a while. I do not know yet if the Gondola in Kitanomine will be up and running this morning. I will see you on the mountain.
