Well that was a nice surprise: 19cm of new snow has fallen in the last 24 hours! The temperature at 8am was -7ºc. We were expecting snow but probably got double the amount forecast which is always a pleasant surprise, especially when fresh snow is accompanied by sunshine! Hopefully the wind is not too strong up top but regardless we expect the skiing and snowboarding in resort to be unbeatable this morning!
Windy conditions across the Niseko ski resorts yesterday but plenty of fresh snow meant it was very deep in all the right places!
The Japan Ski Experience snow station is located in Niseko Hirafu at an elevation of 200m above sea level.
