13cm of new snowfall has been recorded since yesterday and the temperature at 8am was -8c. The strong winds have died down and more lifts and runs within the Niseko ski resort area will be open today although it is still very cold outside. Milder winds continuing to blow through town suggests the top of the mountain will remain shut and backcountry skiing and snowboarding is not recommended today.
Stormy conditions over the last couple of days will have left many Niseko car owners cursing!
