After a warmer day yesterday with no new snow to report winter has returned this morning with 6cm of new snowfall on the JSE snow station and a lot more coming down right now. The temperature at 8am this morning was -3ºc. Heavy snow is anticipated today and tomorrow meaning conditions for skiing and snowboarding across the Niseko ski resort areas should be fantastic throughout the second half of the week.
Yesterday saw overcast conditions with no new snowfall, but hiking the peak of Mt. Annupuri always offers rewards!
The Japan Ski Experience snow station is located in Niseko Hirafu at an elevation of 200m above sea level.
