Snow continued through much of yesterday adding about another 15-20cm since last report. It cleared up though in the evening and has remained mostly fine this morning so far. Some more snow is expected to come through today though.
Many more lifts have opened around the resort and a fair portion of the courses are now able to be skied. Hanazono opened for the first time with skiing on the Hano #3 lift. The Gondola in Hiradu and Niseko Village are now open as well.
The cover on the slopes is pretty good but just off-piste there still plenty of rocks and other obstacles just below the surface so be careful. Some of the off-piste is skiable but there's still a lot of sasa sticking through.
Overall not too bad for this time of year. It won't take much more snow to get the last remianing lifts operating. At this stage quite a bit more snow is expected on Friday.
