Sorry about missing yesterdays report but I've had some troubles with my internet connection. Anyway since last report we've had plenty more wet snow fall across the region. I went up the mountain yesterday and headed high hoping to find better quality snow but mainly found very wind packed powder. I dropped into Annupuri bowl and found some reasonable snow although it was fast becoming tracked out. And although quite heavy the snow in Blueberry's in Hanazono was relatively untracked and good fun. Overall though not exactly Niseko at it's best. There's plenty of snow on the ground and pretty much all off-piste areas now have enough snow to have covered most of the sasa and smaller trees. We now just need it to get a little colder and dump some more of that light, dry powder that we normally get at this time of year. From tomorrow onwards through outlook period exactly that it expected to happen with temps dropping a few degrees and snow forecast every day.
