Another day, another round of getting hammered by overnight snowstorms in Furano, and last night was no exception. High winds and heavy snows picked up late last evening and left us with 10cm+ in the village. Things have quieted down for now, but the snow showers are still coming periodically in an on/off fashion. They're calling for the snow to pick up towards the mid-afternoon, but with all the snow we've received over the last two days, there's already plenty to go around. The resort has raised their official snow depth to 180cm.

Again, the winds have been a huge factor over the past two days, so a lot of the lighter, drier powder has been pushed up along the sides of runs, leaving scanty little fresh for the middles of open courses. As for the ski lifts, there are no closings to report at the moment. However, the official statement from the ski resort for today says that they will monitor the wind situation and make adjustments accordingly.

The sun is peaking out behind the clouds occasionally, and the winds, while still gusty at times, have died down considerably when compared to last night. Also, temperatures are well above the seasonal average, clocking in at a surprisingly mild (for early February) -4 at 10AM. All in all, it's a great day to be out on the mountain.
