First Snowfall Hits Mt.Annupuri

Last night the temperature plunged to -5 and today the expected top temperature in Kutchan will be 8.
With the dip in temperatures and rainfall yesterday hopes were high for some snow accumulation on Mt. Annupuri peak….BINGO!

On the north face of Mt.Yotei the new snowfall reached the top of the tree line.

With one month left before the scheduled opening of Grand Hirafu excitement is building for first tracks of the 2014-15 season!!
