Still snowing heavily in Furano

Lovely fat snow falling in Furano, typically dry and light. No wind but occasional breezes. Just saw a gust in town while I was at a red light.

Minus seven degrees Celsius just now when I crossed the Sorachi River into town. Forecast is for (wait for it) snow. No breaks, no sun. I hope they are a tiny bit wrong because I like the sun. But this snow is fantastic.

The skiing and boarding on the resort is superb. The gondola is running today on the Kitanomine Zone and most of it is now open. Those top runs are excellent. I was just talking to an American boarder who had never skied snow like it. She fell at the top and spent ages getting back up. I asked how deep it was and she said neck, but I think she meant while she was fallen over. Although she was petite...

It is about thigh-deep at the top though. Really dry and floaty.

Photo is at Kitanomine gondola base where the learner's magic carpet should start operating soon.
