Emperor would like his birthday in Furano.

It is a public holiday today for the Emperor's birthday, and it is really very beautiful. Great snow, absolute bluebird, frozen frost on the trees and diamond dust in the air. Furano -- nice one.

About 95cm base up top and 55 at bottom. Both sides of resort open and 9 of 10 lifts running. Still not the Gondola at Kitanomine. Snow forecast for 25 December and it should stick around. Hopefully the sun will make appearances because that's one of the Furano differences. But it's the weather so we shall see.

No wind today and quite a few people about.

I skied yesterday afternoon and it was magic. Mostly groomed skiing on the Furano Zone but the in between country has great fresh tracks deeper than boot deep (and my skis are very wide). The shadow play in the afternoon was something I will never forget.

Photo 1 is yesterday's photo on the resort. Sorry I have new pics from this morning but the device they are in has died. It looks the same but the sky is completely cloudless today.

Photo 2 is the view to Furano town from Kitanomine this morning. Beautiful.

Furano Now ski lift operation notes:

9 out of 10 operating, need the Kitanomine Gondola to open more terrain on that side but the lifts running give access to a day's skiing so not too dire.
