It seems I wrote my last report only yesterday, but it's been more than 6 months since then and the 14/15 season is now just around the corner.
It snowed for the first time yesterday after a warm sunny spell. There was up to 10 cm yesterday morning and about the same amount this morning. It seems that soon enough we are going to get back to our regular routine to start the day snow clearing. A very healthy habit, I should say!
The present snow seems to be a trial to check if everyone is ready for winter. It should warm up from tomorrow with day temperatures reaching two digits during the day. Early next week is supposed to bring lower temperatures after a fairly warm by rainy weekend.
The countdown for Rusutsu Resort opening has started! It's only 25 sleeps now!
