It is a special moment when the white stuff returns to the top of Mt.Yotei! It was great to see Grand Hirafu posting a few shots on their facebook page earlier today!
It is hard to say if it is Hoar frost or Hatsuyuki / First snowfall.It is presently cold in Niseko and chances are high for significant snowfall overnight possibly even as low as Mt.Annupuri.
28th of September is that early? Here are the last 5 years recorded by 360niseko
. 2012 – 18 October

Looking forward to tomorrow and the fast approaching 2017-18 season. 56 days until the scheduled opening of the lifts in Grand Hirafu – first tracks await!
