Rain, hail, sleet, snow combo.

Snowline down to about 600m

Niseko Panorama road was closed today. Seems like a healthy drop on Iwaonupuri and Yotei

Wet snow falling right down to village level currently! clap
Hasn't really settled in the village yet but by morning it might. Currently the snow has settled above around 350m. It's pretty heavy precipitation too so there should be a fair bit settle up top. All very exciting!! thumbsup

Niseko Resort Area

Started snowing on Monday. Down to village level this morning.

Hiked to 1,000m for my first turns of the season. From nothing to knee deep powder. There were pockets of pow up to 64cm deep.

Was able to ski back to approx. 500m

Barely a scratch on the skis

First day of this season is 20 days earlier than last season smile
