I must be saying the right things to keep the snow coming--maybe it was the participation in the Yama no Kami event at the tiny shrine right in the midst of Akakan last week, sort of thanking the local spirit for the season, getting ready for the green season, etc. (and basically an excuse to drink sake at noon under the guise of a culturally significant ceremony). Whatever, we have some excellent snow coming down this morning. Almost makes you feel like those mad days of the past two months when monster powder was the daily rule.

The official reports aren't in, but I'm off to climb one of the local hills and take in the fresh stuff - not that the reports would reflect the snowfall yet. There's about 20cm so far, with a pretty steady fall rate, so it could be a good one.

I'm still happy to see it; a lot of the locals are saying, enough's enough, but if a bunch more later-season skiers showed up, I'm sure they'd all be happy. Keep March in Myoko on your schedule for next year, too....
