The snow is slowly creeping down the hill; the fall blooms (yellow bulldozers and red snowthrowers) are now in full glory around the homes; the invitations for the endless (and ski performance dampening) year-end parties are coming in. That special time of the year is just about upon us.

We’ve had a rainy summer in Myoko this year. Not as much trekking up in the hills, and so much moisture that we worried if there’d be enough water left for snowfall. Not really worried about it, to be honest; there never seems to be much correlation between summer rain and winter snow. More that the Japan Sea is staying pretty warm, which gets that moisture up in the air. Come on, Siberian winds!

A lot more international travelers coming this year; a lot of hotels are pretty well booked for January. No real changes on the hill, but then why mess around with a good thing.

So now it’s just time for that first big snowfall that we usually get this time of year, wet and concrete-like and tough on the trees. Then it melts and makes us wait until too often right around Christmas. And then it really starts coming down.

So I’ll be back from time to time, just to keep you wishing it really was January and there is a meter of new snow on the ground. Which will happen (we hope).


PS Sorry, the clouds just parted as I when to take a look at visibility. Snow down to maybe 900 meters. But I'm not going to record this yet as actual snowfall....
