Default Niseko in December

Is it a bit too early to go Niseko around Christmas time for powder boarding?

If not enough pow during that time, I might completely change the destination.

From my experience (been going for 5 seasons now), December can be a little early. But, as mentioned, this year it was amazing - first half of December and the three weeks following X-mas were pretty epic.

I ride in Nagano, but in the last 7 years here it has almost always dumped pow around Christmas time.

Now thats my kind of white Christmas.

Not guaranteed, but pretty close to it, If you spend a couple of weeks you are almost certain to get some epic epic days.
