Hello from Kiroro!

With 14 cm of new snow at the base and 22 cm at the top and snow still falling, conditions should be pretty good out there today. Snow depth is back up to 200 cm at the base and 300 cm at the top. It's currently lightly snowing with light winds at the base, with 6 cm more expected over the next 24 hours. It will likely be sunny tomorrow morning, with the snow returning by the evening and continuing through Monday. Winds should also stay light to negligible through the weekend. The heaviest snowfall is expected Friday afternoon and evening.

With the snow falling here and conditions supposedly not great in Niseko, it was quite busy this morning in terms of people going out into the back country, so the near-resort back country areas may get tracked out rather quickly.
