Niseko Now!

Weather conditions: Snow, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Only 10cm+ of new snow overnight, but plenty of powder was being blown about yesterday. Hanazono area is scheduled to open today, however, last night there were rumours in the resort that Hana 1 still lacks sufficient snow base. Top lift #7 commences officially, and with the start of night skiing, lifts will run through to 8:30pm tonight.



Fantastic conditions in Hirafu today. Snow has fallen solidly since lunch, and 15cm+ of new powder has collected. Hanazono 1, 2 and 3 lifts are operating, and despite areas towards the bottom where green "sasa" bamboo shoots are still visible, great turns are to be had. So much snow is falling that visibility is best in the trees - Tetsu's being today's pick. Night lights have now come on, and both Alpen and Kogen sides offer light, fluffy, fresh tracks. Temperature is cold (-10C at the Alpen thermometer), so a neck warmer is recommended. Big flakes continue to fall.
