...but don't call it a comeback! I've been here for years!
We still have two more dates to predict... and there may be a prize in it for the winner this year. Who's game?
* First Snow in Village (Abucha/Downtown/YamaZakana:whistle: Corner)
* Resort Opening Date
Is it true there's already been snow on the peak??? Looks like it's going to be a warm week.
As far as predictions go, I'm going with 18th Oct for village snow and 11th Nov for season opening. After last year's late falls, I reckon it'll be a bit early this year.
Can't wait to get back to Hirafu...
