Snow continued throughout yesterday and last night and conditions are just getting better and better by the hour. Some off-piste areas on the upper mountain are now very skiable and I had up to knee deep turns yesterday down Roys'. Since last report there's been around 20-30cm of new snow. With strong winds persisting there are areas where it has drifted considerably deeper than this.
Currently it's still snowing fairly heavily and this should continue throughout today and for much of the outlook over the coming week. Night skiing is up and running and if you have yet to try a nighta in Niseko make sure you get out there and give it a go. Hirafu has one of best night skiing experiences of any ski area in the world.
It's cold out there this morning and windchills on the upper mountain will be below -20 so make sure you rug up!
