Hi Furano Fans! Happy New Year's Eve!

The good thing about doing your snow report in the afternoon, is that you get to report higher numbers as the snow is falling!

Sorry for delay, but the good news is that we have at least 15 cm of new stuff since yesterday. I say at least, cuz it sure seems like more when I'm shoveling out my driveway, then the driveway at work, then starting over, but I digress.

Weather summary: Snow in the morning, moderate winds, cloudy on top. High temp of 0 C today.

The Prince still maintains they have only a 95 cm base. I don't know where they are putting all their snow, but it sure isn't where they are measuring the base. I guess it's possible to keep packing down and have the same base, but not likely. I may have to resort to secretely installing my own measuring device on the hill, and then to serve the public good, inspect it daily. Sacrifices, sacrifices.

The Prince is putting on some pretty cool New Year's festivities tonight. Free snowmobile rides for the kids, snow cat rides (aka "snow groomer") for everyone--at least they better let me ride cuz I've always wanted to. Add in a torch run down the slopes, and fireworks at midnight, and that's a lot of fun for one day.
