Once again last night we were treated to an unexpected sizeable dump from the snow gods. We received a good 25cm of fresh snow on top of yesterdays massive fall.

It snowed most of last night not super heavy but enough to gather on your head as you walked thru the village. It was still snowing this morning but looks like the tap has finally been turned off for now with a bit of blue sky poking thru the clouds. Not sure it will last though as there are a few snowy looking clouds hovering over Myoko that may blow in later.

Yesterday was yet again an amazing powder filled day on the slopes. Was getting a little heavy down low as the temps were a bit warm but was nice conditions all over.

The preparation for the Fire Festival continues today as they enter the final hours it is a race to get it all done but they always get there and the snow should hopefully not hinder construction today. The Festivities kick off at 7 pm down at the Dosojin Arena towards the bottom of the Village just follow the crowds. There will be Fireworks and drummers before the kids have a charge at the tower.

Then the rest of the Villagers will do their best to burn it to the ground. The whole pantomime should come to a fiery climax at about 10pm.

It is quite a long and cold night so rug up especially your feet. There is always free sake on offer but please take it easy we hope not to see a repeat of a few years ago where a few visitors had one too many and fell asleep in the snow! It is still a long way until Spring arrives!

Have a great night.
