The first strong winter weather pattern has arrived in Japan and up here in Niseko we have fresh snowfall to around 500m! Closer to Sapporo at Kiroro Resort and Sapporo Kokusai it has been snowing on and off at the base of those the resorts and they have the pictures to prove it!!

Meanwhile, here in Niseko the freezing level is dropping fast but it is raining at village level. Higher up it is defiantly snowing and we can see accumulations building!! We have snow forecast from this afternoon and overnight. Will it reach village level? Will it last..? Winter IS coming!
