Your faithful weather reporter (me) is a little desk bound lately, but please know Furano is rocking it at the moment.

I had a night ski last night and there was still knee deep powder down low. Down low, people... I am almost disappointed that it wasn't skied out!

I think it means people are having such fun up high, by the time they get down low they are just thinking about lunch or dinner.

So locals (ie people who have skied here all their live) are finding the snow a little heavy. I did notice it wasn't the usual light dry snow last night, but I didn't find it heavy by any standard other than Furano standard. It's still powder. I flicked it, tossed it, puffed it with a blast of breath, and other silly looking scientific methods. It is very nice. But yes, it's not as dry as normal.

So the resort has the base at 225cm this morning. I am guessing it is more than that and it snowed most of the day if not all day. At 7am it was -7C and there was no wind.

Everything is open and everything is lovely.
