18cm of new snowfall has been recorded since yesterday and the temperature at 8am this morning was a crisp -5c. We awoke to clear skies over the Niseko ski resort area and a superb sunrise over Mt. Yotei. Conditions should be excellent this morning, especially higher up the mountain where more backcountry gates in Niseko Hirafu and Annupuri are rumoured to open for the first time during winter 2020-21. In summary fresh powder on the mountain with plenty more coming all week long. We apologise for the repetitive nature of the Niseko snow forecast!
Fresh powder snow and clear skies over the Niseko United ski resorts this morning.
