Only a brief update as I'm heading up for a ski this morning and will give a more detailed report later today.
After another 20-30cm through the day yesterday snowfalls eased a little overnight with only another 15cm falling. This morning it's only snowing lightly but snowfalls are expected to continue throughout the day and winds have moderated which should allow most lifts to run. Conditions couldn't be much better with deep dry snow all over mountain.

The resort hasn't updated snowdepths at time of writing this. Will update later.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 320cm
Bottom - 145cm

Niseko Village:
Top - 330cm
Bottom - 160cm

Annupuri:
Top - 360cm
Bottom - 190cm

Late update:

What an awesome morning! Much of the morning only had occasional snow showers with sunny breaks in between. We headed out to Hanazono as all lifts had remained closed there yesterday due to the wind. After a couple of great runs in Strawberry Fields with fresh tracks we headed over to Bluberries for some more fresh turns in bottomless powder. After this we headed up higher and out through gate 5 for some more fresh lines in Fujiwara. Things were starting to get a little tracked out so we headed over to Annupuri and had some nice runs in the gully below gate 7. By around lunch time though the cloud, snow and wind was back so we called it quits for the day as it just wasn't going to get any better than what we had in the morning. If there's anything better than fresh lines in bottomless powder with sunshine I certainly haven't found it yet.

The winds today were still very strong and the top gates and lifts have yet to open. When they do there's going to be some amazing snow to be had. The snow showers are expected to continue over the next couple of days and on Friday another low will approach from the west bringing milder air ahead of it. Temps look set to get slightly above freezing through the day before dropping back down again over the weekend. More snow will come through with this system.
