Very little at village level and most of the lower slopes are now snow free. Still a reasonable cover above the Ace quad. Unseasonably warm weather on the way this weekend though so suspect much of it will melt. Top of Youtei is pretty plastered still though.

Missed the Niseko opening last weekend but the lure of Kurodake's opening on the 20th was too much


Jumped on the the ropeway with a small crew and 7 mins later it was ON.




After a couple runs the opening ceremony kicked in which was pretty quick this year - 10 mins later it was back on.




Great conditions up there a meter + and cold. Wasn't expecting awesome powder but thats what the handful of people up there for the day got. The sun even came out after a few hours.....i love Kurodake !!!
