When is the best time to come?

That   depends   on   your   luck   and   also   what   you   demand   out   of   the   snow.   Put   briefly   (and   every   year   is different)   before   the   middle   of   Dec   snow   can   be   very   unreliable   ,   but   on   the   other   hand   there   are   years when   there   can   be   metres   of   fresh   snow   and   no-one   to   share   it   with.Goryu/47   are   the   best   bet   if   you   are coming   early   on.   From   xmas   till   the   end   of   Feb   is   normally   most   reliable   for   powder.   March   can   be   warm and    slushy,    but    usually    there    is    still    good    snow    coverage,    the    occasional    dump    and    again    little competition   for   the   snow.   In April   the   snow   starts   wearing   thin,   but   having   said   that   Goryu/47   and   Happo manage to stay open till early May.
