We finally got our fair share of the snow yesterday afternoon when the sky opened up and dumped a good 15cm of powder everywhere. Just when I thought it was safe to shovel off my driveway, we got another 5cm overnight. The flakes are still flying outside, but it's warmed up to around freezing, so there shouldn't be too much more additional accumulation.

The big news today is that for the first time this season, Sailer Course is open from top to bottom! After all the winter weather this week, we're sitting on 70cm of powder in the Furano Zone. Things toward the foot of the mountain aren't as thick and fluffy as the snow on the top, so please exercise a degree of caution when heading down the lower half, but that is to say nothing of all the untouched powder troves that await the first turns of the year.

Things should stay cloudy and cold throughout the day, but look for a brief warm-up tomorrow afternoon when both snow and a chilly rain are in the forecast for Sunday.

Today is definitely the day to get out on the mountain.
