Yippee!

The first snow on the mountains fell yesterday afternoon through the night. The clowds opened up this morning to give us a beautiful view of those virgin white peaks in a sea of azure. The snow line at first light was down to 1800 metres and slowly has crept up to around 2200 on solar aspects. The leaves in the valley are a beautiful shade of Koyou (Autumn colours). It is just an unbelievably beautiful day. On the way to the office I must have past at least 30 or so standing at the side of the road snapping shots of the spectacular sight. I must confess I was one of those drawn to get the camera out and snap away. The moon was just in behind Mt Hakuba Yarigadake and Mt Hakuba Shakushidake. The air is crisp and and the temperatures mild. There is no breeze to speak of and is a great day for a ride which what we are all heading out to do in Hakuba NOW!

Stay tuned for more snow.

Rule of thumb: It snows in the valley 2 weeks after the first snow on the mountian tops and it starts to stick 2 weeks after that. That would put us at November 23rd for the ski hills to start collecting snow.

Ski hills opening early December? Hard to tell yet but it is looking like a definate possibility.

Yippee!!!
