Gyu Bar, Niseko, Japan

Spotted this pic of the grooviest cocktail bar in Niseko on Snow Japan. The front door is the front of a coke machine & you have to duck to get through it, while around the back are huge windows looking out over a snowy garden. The barman DJs lounge music inbetween mixing drinks.

They must be having a ripper season in Japan, as we stayed across the road from this bar in 2002, & there was no-where near as much snow in that spot – yet we still rode powder daily… gotta love Japan :)

February is the least likely month of the year for snow in Australia, & yet… check out these snowcams! Looks like more than just a dusting too – 12cm & still falling – I’d call this a DUMP!

More info below – I’d take that last line with a pinch of salt though – unseasonal snowfalls have no effect on the season whatsoever… dont believe the hype!

From Ian Talbot of Ski Press in Falls Creek:
The bizarre, wild weather brought the first significant snowfalls to the alpine resort of Falls Creek, in the heart of the Victorian Alps.
It was minus 1.6 overnight and resort staff encountered significant snow 4kms below Falls Creek on the road up to the resort this morning. The Bogong High Plains Road is currently closed beyond Falls Creek.
Whilst the wild weather has caused widespread damage across Victoria and NSW the alpine resort is experiencing a true mid-winter day, with at least 12cm of snow already blanketing the ski slopes. (128 days to go to official start of the 2005 season).
This is its first serious snowfall in 2005 and the operators of the resort’s ski lodges are optimistic it could be an omen from Mother Nature its record-breaking seasons will continue.
