It snowed a lot yesterday afternoon but not for last night. I went to Niseko Village yesterday. I still touched icy bottom however I really enjoyed fresh powder, first time in a long time.
The condition will be same as yesterday, a bit more snow but still touching icy bottom at some parts. It’s warmer than yesterday. I hope it won’t get too foggy. I might go to Annupuri to enjoy both groomers and powder:)
It will start snowing this afternoon through the night. I hope this snow fall will cover all tracks.
