Did anyone order half a metre of fresh, dry powder snow? Because it's been dropped off in Niseko ready for you arrival!
Heavy snow fell throughout the last 24 hours bringing the depth in Hirafu up to 1.5m which despite the slow start is about about average for this time of year.
Reports from those lucky enough to get up the mountain yesterday were of turns in up to hip deep powder and this morning that's likely to have increased to waist deep.
It's still snowing moderately and is expected to continue unabated until about Tuesday next week when we may have a brief respite to catch up on some snow clearing.
Finally this season Niseko is actually living up to the hype of being one of the snowiest ski resorts on the planet.
