I think I used the word 'wow' yesterday, so I feel somewhat unoriginal using it again but... wow! Being unoriginal in November is a little concerning, though in this case, it's good news...!

This really is turning up to be an impressive start to the winter season and I can't quite remember such a start. But long may that continue.

With the continued snowfall during the day yesterday, this morning I have another 21cm of fresh snowfall here at base to add to the report.

The Niseko Now 'Snowfall Analysis' page is already showing some interesting numbers. This time last year, I had reported 6cm of snow and the season before a stupidly embarrassing 0cm. This season I have already reported 102cm.

Check that out that page here:

We're still looking at a good chance of milder conditions and rain tomorrow. (Booo).

Beyond that though, the forecast is looking very nice still.

Fantastic. I love being able to bring great news.
