Chest deep will have to do today...

Ha!

I just asked some boarders who came in for an early lunch how it was on the hill at Furano today, and they said, 'well it's midday and there is still waist deep powder'.

So OK then. I do love understatement. Apparently some sidecountry runs are chest deep, too. Heh, heh, heh.

Bit breezy but not windy, snow falling-falling-falling, a good metre of fresh up top in places. Yesterday was my day off and I cleared my driveway in Kitanomine twice, 25cm at about 9am and another 20ish at around 4pm. I like clearing snow. The resort is reporting 10-15cm of snow which seems very conservative indeed.

It was -7C when I crossed the Sorachi river just now to come and tell you it is snowing and there is a lot of snow. That's really all there is to say now. It's very nice. It's very snowy.

I am sorry if you went to night ski last night on my advice. I got the kids rugged up and hyped up at 6pm for this purpose only to discover it wasn't on in Kitanomine Zone like I thought it was. I checked this morning and they did run it but just for safety checks. So that is closed. Not open. But tonight it is open. Hope you found somewhere to sled yesterday evening - that's what we did.


Photo 1 is a map of what is open now at Furano resort, which is everything. If you like snorkel deep powder and are not a beginner, you MUST go to the top of the Kitanomine Gondola.

Photo 2 is folks having fun at Kitanomine just now.
