Well, it is that time of year where we are in the run up stage to the 2016-17 ski season.

Wintery weather has definitely set in and house heating systems are cranked up to compensate for the fall in temperatures outside. First snowfalls have been early in Furano this year which is a really promising sign for a good winter. Over the past month there have been several dustings of snow to village level. None of these settled on the roads but there were some accummulations on lawns around town. The ski area has retained its whiteness for some time now. It is actually a really picturesque time of year with the golds, reds and browns of autumn mixed in with the fresh whiteness of winter. Sunday morning was the first snowfall that acummulated on the roads in the village and we awoke to find a very respectable 6 centimetres. Winter has started!

Furano Ski Area has set a target opening date of 26 November 2016 subject to snow and weather conditions being suitable. This is actually just over 3 weeks out from today which is pretty exciting. It is time to go searching through the house for all the equipment and clothing I need for opening day.

Today is cloudy with the weather drifting between light snow flurries and drizzle. Morning temperatures were siting right on 0c at 8am this morning in Kitanomine. From here on, any significant snow and weather events will be reported on Furano Now. Stay tuned...
