It was dumping last night and we’ve got about 7 cm of new snow this morning.
It was unexpectedly windy yesterday. I might go to Niseko Village as the strong north wind might have brought some extra snow there.
Now it’s clear the massive storm is coming to Hokkaido on New Year’s eve. Fingers crossed.
