Well today was definitely up there with one of the best days skiing I've ever had. Rusutsu had knee to waist deep powder and fresh tracks were to be found throughout the whole day. Every run was epic!
In Niseko I'd think there'd be similar stories after we had another 15cm last night and probably another 5-10cm through the day. Conditions just don't get much better than this.
Tomorrow the next low pressure system will start affecting the region and temps will get warmer, up to near freezing, and the snow down low will get a little heavier. The milder temps won't last long though and plenty of snow is expected through tomorrow and over the weekend. Winds will pick up again though and by Saturday it will most likely be blizzard conditions and I doubt too many lifts will be able to operate.
Throughout the coming week more snowfalls are forecast but temps will be a little warmer than they've been this last week.
