Yesterday afternoon saw the first rain bands of the approaching typhoon reach Niseko. This was the first typhoon of the season to reach up to the western side of Hokkaido. The centre of the storm has moved just to the east of the island and we are in the very cool N-NE airstream on it's western flank.
There should have been considerable amounts of snow overnight up on Youtei and possibly down to the top of Annupuri. Currently though it's very cloudy and still raining down low and neither mountain is visible enough to see the snow. Hopefully it'll clear up a bit later in the day.
More incursions of cool air are expected over the coming week with further snowfalls up high. A nice build-up to the coming season and Niseko is certainly close to it's most spectacular when the lower forests are in vivid colour and the mountain tops capped in white. It's only a brief period though before the snows will descend right to sea level and the whole island gets smothered in snow.
