A new week and another dusting in Niseko

The snow line is creeping lower...

This morning we were treated again to the welcome sight of early season snowfall. Kutchan got down to 5 degrees overnight but it was obviously alot colder higher up. It looks like the weather will remain cold with 0 to 9 forecast for Wednesday so we can expect more snowfall at higher elevations. It is unlikely that the snowfall will make it to village level but you never know.

Make sure you get your entry in for Kutchannel’s annual “Niseko First Snow Contest” and put yourself in the running to win an amazing dinner including drinks for 6 people at Bistro le Cochon!
