As the wind dies down the next few days should be good up on the mountain! We love Niseko!!

  1. Super intense ..Morning program will be epic …great shots …great sight …Mid and lower village is buried….roads to castle house and the rockin’ little green cottage with a measure stick is in desperate need of Takayama boys …..Tasukete kudasai !!.

    • iiiya!! Buried roads….the snow clearing battle is upon us! Ok, will call in the cavalry. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. Hi Glen, I came across your blog a few weeks back when searching for what is happening with Hirafu-Zaka main street upgrade. I had been searching for updates for ages, well you solved that with fantastic photos and information. We have looked at your blog every day since. Great timing to take in your photo’s and then the first lots of snow.
    Please keep up the great work – It is good.
