An absolutely stunning morning here and absolutely freezing… well 5 degrees below freezing to be precise. No snow to report but when it looks like this it doesn’t bother me at all. There’s going to be some great groomer riding out there today and no doubt lots of selfies with Mt Yotei in the background. Keep an eye out for an almost full moon rising over a pink Yotei this afternoon.
Looking ahead and it’s all good news. From tomorrow or Christmas we’re due for a big prolonged storm to come through with cold temps right through until about the 29th. Then the computer models are showing another system coming through. Early days yet so this might change, but if not it’s happy days here in Niseko!
