So pretty this morning in Kitanomine Village

Furano received a dusting over night which gave us a very attractive 3mm more or less. Typically light and fluffy - Furano snow is consistently dry.

PHOTO 1 is of Furano resort Kitanomine Zone at about 7am today.
PHOTO 2 is of my deck this morning, with a perfect dusting. The sparkles were very lovely.

The mercury read about -3C at about 6.45am, but by 7ish it was already nearing zero. Bluebird day looked promising but snow is forecast for tonight (and most of the rest of winter, I would imagine) so clouds will roll in later.

Japanese lesson: fuwa fuwa yuki means fluffy, fluffy snow. It's sort of baby speak, but it is completely appropriate at this time of year.

So in theory, Furano resort begins to open in about a week. That is not impossible if the forecast dumps really dump.

We shall see.
