Niseko’s got 3 cm of fresh snow from yesterday afternoon. Now the sky is blue and I can see mountains with some clouds.
I hope there is a bit more new snow at upper mountains. I will go to Grand Hirafu and see. Kiroro or Sapporo Kokusai would be a good option today. I’ve heard that it was dumping in Jozakei which is closed to Sapporo Kokusai yesterday.
No snow fall is forecast for next week at this point. Let’s enjoy the sunshine!
