Ladies and gentlemen, it is only the very cusp of October and last night saw the first snow fall at the very top of the ski resort. It got down to a brisk 2 degrees here in the village, and when I awoke, the top of Furano Zone was covered in a beautiful shade of white. The Daisestuzan mountain range to the north has already seen a dusting here and there, but for the first time this season Ashibetsu-dake, Furano Nishi-dake, and the surrounding smaller mountains received a tart taste of winter.

The actual start of the season is still a long ways off, but things are off to a brilliant start. Temperatures are expected to be cold again tonight with a wintry mix in the forecast down here in the village. Too cold for this time of year to be certain, as Furano usually sees snow for the first time around Halloween, but it's exciting enough to make you get our your skis and snowboards and start dusting them off.

Here's to an exciting season with plenty of powder.
