Good morning from peaceful Furano

So yesterday I gave an afternoon update (I left the ski resort at midday sharp). Today my observations were made around 8am nearer the resort, and again, now, from Furano town.

It's still around -3C at the Sorachi River, so with our light cloud cover, it would be around -6 at the top of the resort. it's a a bit more than 1000 metres higher than the river.

We've had about 5 centimetres of snow fall on the mountain since my afternoon update yesterday. I now have a good connection on the grooming team who passed that on.

I have asked my groomer buddy to estimate the current base depth up there for us too, but until I hear back we will keep it at 60 centimetres. This is because even with new snowfall (25cm all up in about the last 30 hours) it will be compacting. When I skied yesterday there was light grass showing on one run but on the sides of the piste, the powder was knee deep.

It's bright here today but cloudy. I would not be surprised if it cleared and we got some sunshine but we shall see.

There is no wind, nor was there any this morning. Really still.

Photo 1 is the resort on the Kitanomine Village side, which should be open in 9 days. Exciting...

Photo 2 is the Kitanomine Zone of the resort, taken just on the Furano town side of the Sorachi River. The Furano Zone at the New Prince Hotel side is obscured by that natural looking (no runs cut) mountain to the left.
