Snow Forecast Later Today

Woke up this morning expecting to see snow on the ground, and instead it is one of the most beautiful, sky blue days we've had so far this "winter." The views of Asahidake are stunning.

Oh well, snow is still forecast this afternoon, so I'll keep the faith and wait.

And wait...

There really is no other option.

For those of you watching at home, the Furano webcam just happens to show the absolute worst part of the entire Furano ski area. The Furano side is open, and you can still ski down to the bottom. That part of the ski area faces a slightly different direction, and has more snow than the Kitanomine side. Normally this isn't an issue with plenty of snow to go around, but in dicey times like these, it makes all the difference. With no webcam to back me up, I cannot offer any visual comfort. Sorry.

The top still looks good. The base is still sticking. As soon as winter decides to arrive, things should shift into normal mode almost immediately.

Think Snow!
