Hello everyone from here in Hirafu... and I'm actually quite excited this morning.

Last night the snow started to fall once again and this morning there's 11cm of it outside my place with more snowy conditions forecast for the day today, with it easing off by early tomorrow morning.

Without giving too much away, once the new SnowJapan updates go online it will be very easy for you to compare snowfall in recent seasons. Last season it looks like it was the later part of November before we got any proper numbers, so we are enjoying a positive start this season. Let's hope it continues that way.

I have literally spent hours playing around with the new stuff that the SnowJapan guys have cooked up for this season. It is really is very interesting and I am sure Niseko Now readers will like it. I'll try not to think how important the daily "new snowfall" number is when I post my reports. Of course, you can be sure that there'll never be any over-reporting from me. Oh no! All being well, we'll get masses of snow anyway...
