Fireworks in a snow storm.

Last night was the first day of the 44th Furano Ski Festival. Big kudos to the Self Defense Force band who played at least a 30-minute set in a full-on snow storm and wind blowing into their faces/instruments. They never blinked. The highlight at the close of the evening was a 15-minute fireworks display. The wrinkle was that it was snowing like crazy, with a good wind to boot.

But the show pressed on, and it was really cool to see fireworks in a snowstorm. It dims the brilliance a bit, but the snow scatters the light all around, so it illuminates the whole sky.

Snow report...10+ cm on the ground at the base. Light wind. Good temps. Definitely a day to be out there.

Today is the concluding day for the Furano Snow Festival. There will be more games, a kids ski race, an obstacle course for the kiddies (with Nintendo DSi for the winners!), Nordic walking, cross country skiing, and more food!! It goes until 2:00 PM in the Kitanomine parking lot.

Stop by for some winter fun.

Think Snow. Think Powder.
