*0.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was 0°C. On Friday evening a strong cold front moved into the region coupled with strong winds and heavy rainfall at lower elevations but higher up on the mountain there was a solid layer of snow. We had another cold night and this morning have been treated to our first light layer of snowfall down to lower elevations allowing us to capture our first snow station shot 😉 Temperatures look set to rise from tomorrow but we could see a return of fresh snowfall into next weekend. When we will see first tracks is anyone’s guess.
