Autumn in Niseko Right Here Right Now

The ebb and flow of the seasons never ceases to amaze here in Niseko. After the excitement of Hatsuyuki melted away and warmer weather returned to the region the temperature has again dropped. Today there is fresh snowfall on the peaks of Mt.Yotei and Mt.Annupuri and a cold wind blowing.

Here are some images taken over the course of the last month or so showing part of the landscapes transformation into winter.

Grand Hirafu is scheduled to open in 4 weeks time. First tracks….hmm when will they be up for grabs?
