I am sorry to be late today, but there are stories to be told when the snow is this deep....

Basically it was vehicular mayhem out there on the road up to Akakura. Your reporter pulled six (6) cars up the road with his front loader when they reached that point right near where I am sitting where the road turns a little steeper. Seems the problem was that the prefectural road, which is less steep, was not plowed, so the drivers, many in two-wheel-drive vehicles, had to come up the direct road. And got stuck.

But the lifts were slow to open, too. And it's still snowing. And another close-on record snowfall. I had a second person poke the snow, just to confirm and we will stand by our number. (Although there was some drifting as well, even though we're in a generally sheltered spot). Just a little too much good stuff, but we sure are glad to see the snow and the coverage both for the resorts and outside as well.

More to come.
