20 cm of new snow has fallen in the last 12 hours. Outside is very dark and gray, looks like the real winter has started.
I went to Annupuri to check the snow condition after heavy rain on last Wednesday. Luckily all courses were still covered by snow however they were icy. Hopefully fresh soft snow covers all icy parts today.
This weekend is going to be a big weekend! Niseko Village will open today and Hanazono will open tomorrow!! Also Grand Hirafu will cut off their new Ace family quad lift. This is a great news for kids and beginners:)
It’s still windy today, please check the latest lift status before you go. NISEKO UNITED
More snow is falling today and tomorrow:)
