Good morning from Niseko.

And yes we have some fresh snowfall. I have measured 4cm and I note that Niseko Grand Hirafu seem to be talking about 13cm of snowfall on the upper areas of the mountain.

Yey!

The fields lower down in town areas aren't covered (or just dusted depending), so typically late season when there is more of a contrast than usual between base and top.

Last of the season?

Limited visibility out there early morning. Cloudy. Chance of some drizzle later this afternoon, and then perhaps a bit of sunshine tomorrow.
