It didn’t snow much overnight but it was dumping yesterday’s morning.
Yesterday was the best day of the season so far. Top lifts finally opened in Niseko Village and Grand Hirafu, everyone was shouting “Woooo Hoooo!!” in the powder. Snow was untouched, chest deep, fresh and unreal.
A light snow keeps falling this morning, it’s very cold outside today, please be warm.
