Beautiful blue sky and white new snow this morning. Rain changed to wet snow and kept falling all day yesterday, I hope snow is bit lighter at higher mountains. Don’t forget your sunglasses and sun screen, and please drive safely as there are many animals on the road, they just woke up;)
This is the last report for 2016-2017 season. I hope everyone had great time in Niseko and see you next season!!
