Not just on Mount Youtei as where it traditionally starts, the white gold fell on the Niseko skiing area (Mt Annupuri) as well. Amazingly this snow arrived three weeks ealier than this time last year.
With only four weeks till open day fingers are crossed we get an opening like last year. November 26th 2007 was a day to remember - knee deep Niseko powder with only a handfull of people out.
With a very short Autumn/Fall this year and a tonne of “stink bugs” in the area (a local myth that their presence means snow); both a great indication of a bumper season to follow.
Fingers (and stocks) are crossed…
