Will these snowfalls ever end? I sure hope not!
It's getting very deep up there with waist deep turns and plenty of faceshots. Just beware that if you fall in this stuff it can be very hard to get back up as there's nothing solid to push yourself up on.
Another 30cm+ since last report and it's still snowing out there. Plenty more forecast through to about Tuesday when things should settle a bit for a few days before the next big storm expected to come through around Christmas or Boxing day.
The lower part of Hanazono has opened for the first time today so be sure to head over for some awesome off-piste freshies.
I've been in Niseko for quite a few seasons now and truly the conditions up there at the moment are amongst the best I've ever experienced.
