Niseko Snow Report, 3rd October 2011

Signs of an early start to the ski season?

If you were up and about early this morning you would have noticed the slightly slushy snow that had fallen on Hirafu village last night. The temperature is still low and the snow has settled at 500m on the ski runs.

Below are some great shots Glen bagged this morning.
