Snow has finally returned to Niseko but unfortunately so has wind. Around 10-15cm of nice powder has fallen overnight but many of the slopes will have been scoured back to the icy base from the strong winds. Hirafu so far has only got the very bottom lifts open but around at Annupuri they've managed to get the gondola running. The winds should moderate a little through the morning allowing access to the higher slopes later. I doubt the top lifts will open at all today though. There has been significant drifting around the mountain and avalanche danger has increased dramatically again and most higher gates will remain closed. If you do manage to get up higher today make sure you rug up and beware of frostbite on exposed skin, it's very cold and windy up there.
Snowfalls should continue throughout today right through to Tuesday. At this stage another system with reasonable snowfalls should move through Thursday night into Friday.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 270cm
Bottom - 120cm

Niseko Village:
Top - 300cm
Bottom - 160cm

Top - 330cm
Bottom - 190cm
