All the snowy weather we've been seeing this week has finally dissolved into the most gorgeous day we've seen in Furano in a while. The skies are bluer than ever, and all that snowfall has left the most pristine powder on top of everything. If ever there were a day for skiing and snowboarding, ladies and gentlemen, it is TODAY. The temperatures sound a bit chilly at -9, but with all that sun it feels much warmer out there! However, the afternoon forecast is calling for more snow showers, so you might want to get out there while you can and enjoy that blue sky skiing Furano is so famous for!

The resort has finally updated the official snow depth to 150cm. It's definitely much deeper in many, many areas, but that is the official depth for now. If we look back to this date on last year's calendar, you will see that we had just broken the 100cm mark on January 14th, 2011. At the present, we have 50% more snow this year than we did in 2011. It's shaping up to be a really good year for Furano.

Winds are fairly light at 3 m/s, and there's about 5cm of freshly fallen snow from the weather we saw last night, but again, the big story is the beautiful weather we're having this Saturday.
