It has been snowing from Yesterday, so that we have a lot of snow overnight. We had to do snow shoveling every 3 hours. No kidding. Before breakfast, before noon, after the break of 3 o’clock snack, before dinner and before sleeping. It is very good thing for Ski areas in Sapporo. Bankei Ski Area opened Yesterday, 14 Dec 2014. Every slopes are opened due to recent heavy snow. Also other ski areas in Sapporo such as Mt.Moiwa will open on this weekend. Fu’s Snow Area will open Tomorrow , 16 Dec, 2014. This is a good news! Snow condition is very nice and powder. You can fun skiing on powder snow.
