Rain continued through much of yesterday getting heavier in the afternoon but easing after 6pm. Late in the evening the cooler air started moving in but most of the precipitation had moved through so there was little follow up snow overnight. This morning though it has started snowing moderately which should continue on and off throughout the day. Heavier snow is expected overnight tonight and then for much of the rest of the weekly forecast. Temperatures from tomorrow will remain very low, unlikely to get much above -5 at village level for much of the coming week.
The NW airstream that usually dominates throughout the winter months and locally known as the 'powder express', for the prodigious amounts of powder it produces, looks like it's finally pulling into Niseko station.
Currently up on the slopes there's only dust on crust conditions but expect these to improve dramatically over the coming days.
