Real snow today!

Just in time for the first "soft opening" at Akakura Onsen, which has three lifts operating (but which also warns about rocks and brush - but it's skiing!). In fact it was enough snow that I had to get busy today not only with the trusty peetah (the local name for the monster snowthrowers) as well as a new toy, a small front loader. Having fun with the heavy metal! Too much fun, as I realized I need to let you good people know about the snow coming down.

We're seeing some good ongoing light to moderate snow at the moment. The sun tried to peek out a few seconds ago, but we're back to light snowfall.

I'm also pleased to say that I'll be reporting most mornings from even closer to the base of Akakan Ski Area - moving from my house at 670 meters to right around 700. And it does make a difference!
