This morning there was no snow to report at village level. At first glance looking towards Mt.Yotei there was no obvious snowfall but looking up towards Mt. Annupuri peak from Hirafu it was a different story, a nice dusting clearly visible to the top of the Alpen course.
Temperatures have dropped and substantially today and snowfall has been forecast over the next 3 days. With just over a week until the scheduled opening of Mt Niseko Grand Hirafu Resort on the 22nd of November prospects are suddenly looking good for a solid opening weekend.
