Good morning from Niseko.

And it's another really, really good morning and I can confidently add another 27cm to the reports.

I have now reported a very impressive 162cm of snowfall this month here at base which is way more than recent seasons - and crazily more than some (I'm talking about you 2014-2015). You can of course keep tabs on this kind of information lower down this page and on the 'Snowfall Analysis' page... just click on the big blue tab at the top of this page.

This morning the Niseko Grand Hirafu official snow depth at top has hit 200cm already.

Let me just check... yes, it is still only 26th November.

Anyway, I mentioned wind yesterday. It doesn't feel too windy outside where I am, but having said that at the start of the day the Annupuri Gondola and Jumbo Number 3 lifts are on standby due to wind conditions over there, so let's hope they can get moving sooner than later.

It's just generally cloudy as I write my report though the snow clouds are still around and there's a chance of some more flakes. It's not crazily cold this morning.

We are expecting some milder conditions early to mid-week, with a return to fresh snowfall around Wednesday.

A few more courses are now available at Niseko Grand Hirafu - details below.

Have a great Sunday!
