Finally some good news with a reasonable fall of fresh snow overnight. There's been 10-15cm of snow across the resort with a fair amount of drifting into lee slopes up higher on the mountain. It is still snowing currently and is expected to continue well into tomorrow. Winter has returned to Niseko!

Somewhat obviously this new snow hasn't yet had time to bond with the icy layer created from the mild weather of late so avalanche danger today is high and most gates will remain closed. Winds are quite strong up top so the very upper lifts may not open this morning but should be able to operate later today.

Anyway it's great to have some fresh snow out there so make sure you get up the mountain as Friday and Saturday are looking windy with possible rain and then snow.
