Sorry about the break in reports but I've been away with no access to the net. Overall the weather has remained mostly fine and cool to mild. We had a bit of drizzle late yesterday but so far this month there has been very little precipitation in the Niseko area.

The general snow cover has mostly gone from the plains around Kutchan with only drifts left and the lower slopes of Hirafu are starting to get pretty thin with patches getting larger by the day. There's still no problem getting from top to bottom though. Up high there's still a very good cover.

The next couple of days are looking quite mild but some reasonably heavy rain is expected to move in later on Tuesday. By Thursday it will be quite cool with top temps below 10 degrees and there's the possibility of some snow on the higher parts of the mountain.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 275cm
Bottom - 40cm

Niseko Village:
No longer updating snow depth

Annupuri:
Top - 230cm
Bottom - 60cm
