Snowplow vehicles are working hard outside. Snow was falling heavily last night when I went to bed. I think it was snowing all night. We’ve got 20 cm of fresh snow.
I checked the snow report and found out that Niseko town’s got snow 10 cm more than Kutchan town. So I am wondering if Annupuri side has more fresh snow than Grand Hirafu side today… will see.
It looks like next snow storm is coming in early next week.
