Winter has certainly arrived in Furano

And it's as if she never left. If you have come to ski Furano in the past, I can tell you that today it looks like it always looks. The snow clearers have been out, the footpaths already have stacked snow along them, the parking lots around town are cleared, and life is going on as normal, as if nothing even happened. Furano locals are clearly very good at this.

On the mountain, the resort would have benefited from the 30 or so centimetres that fell at the base in Kitanomine Village. We are seeking updated numbers from the resort, but the beauty of Japan is they really don't worry about measuring such things. At least in Furano they don't. A lot of snow is a lot of snow. Once the ski season gets going, what really matters in Furano, because the snow is dry here in the centre of Hokkaido, is whether or not there is any fresh to play in off piste or in the nearby back country. Today there most certainly is fresh snow. My family went up to Tokachi Dake this morning for some turns.

At about 7am it was -5 degrees at Kitanomine Village, so about -9 or -10 atop the resort.
