Snow stopped falling and it’s cloudy at 6 am in Niseko town.

Niseko’s got 20 cm of new snow during a day yesterday. And another 10 cm over night! So I hope mountain’s got over 30 cm on top! I am trying to get the first Gondora at Grand Hirafu, and get the first track! It’s much colder than last few weeks and windy. Don’t forget your face mask today.

A typical winter weather system is set over Hokkaido for next few days. Winter has just begun.
