IS there any surer sign winter is on the way than people skiing and boarding in Niseko? And it’s basically still autumn!
With 15cm at village level overnight, keen local expats Glen, Paul and Nick hiked up at Hirafu to see if it was any deeper up high.
It was, and there’s a very good chance these were the first tracks of season 2010/11.
Pretty respectable tracks too!

Nice one guys!
