Happy Halloween from Niseko

As we wait for the first dump snowfall to arrive in Niseko there is an eerie calm around the farmlands surrounding Niseko.

With the temperature reasonably warm today it was a good chance to get on the bike and head out to the the ‘Kutchan Potato Fields’

The farms are quiet…crops harvested, fields plowed and equipment packed away for the winter. Being prepared for the meters of snow that will arrive shortly is essential in this part of the world and the local farmers are masters.

Green light for snow!

Probably won’t be able to ride for much longer….
