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.
