MT Yotei received its first dusting of snow for the season yesterday, heightening excitement among powder lovers and reminding us that the season is just around the corner.
After a summer that had above average rainfall, hopes are high that this winter will see big snowfalls.
The first snow on Yotei comes a little later than last year (September 25), but a little earlier than the year before (October 10).
The first snowfall in Hokkaido this year came two weeks earlier than last year on September 9.
With the recovering world economy, Niseko accommodation and holiday bookings for the upcoming season are strong and expected to continue to increase.
