Heavy snowfall in Niseko has Mt Yotei covered.

Snow began falling yesterday afternoon and didn't relent in to the evening and throughout the night, leaving over 8cm of fresh snow at resort level. A brief respite this morning made these incredible photos possible, before the snow set back in. And it hasn't stopped since!

Good times ahead!
