Talcum powder - like snow in the resort this morning, really amazing conditions. With all the reports of lack of snow in the main European resorts and even in other parts of Japan, a day like today is a reminder of how lucky visitor to Niseko are to have such a consistently long season.

Today was the first time the resort felt busy - the car park was full this morning and each day is bringing more and more visitors with next weekend seeing what will probably be the first big spike in numbers of the season.

This Siberian system is due to really kick in over the next few days with very low temperatures around -19C and heavy snows over Saturday, perfect "Powder Factory" conditions. A good guess would be that most if not all of the resort areas can open up for the coming weekend.

As always, early season rules apply when heading off the groomers, take care and enjoy your turns.
