We hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season, wherever you are this year! Fresh powder snow has continued to pile up throughout the festive period here in Niseko making for a very white Christmas. 16cm of light, dry snowfall has been recorded since yesterday and the temperature at 8am was a very chilly -8c. With snow forecast to fall all week long – with the heaviest snowfall expected on Friday – it is very likely that we will hit the 4 metre mark for the winter season before the end of 2021! Temperatures will remain well below freezing so layer up if you will be skiing or snowboarding this week!
Consistent and heavy snowfall is forecast across all Niseko ski resorts until the end of the year!
