    New Snow Past 24hrs

    Temperature (that create/produce bone dry powder Niseko is renowned for) Hirafu Village -13°C / -13°C Top Station -15°C / -15°C
    Snow To Date Resort level 696cm to 903cm (getting close to 10 metres) Top of Hirafu ski lifts

    Sublime chest deep conditions out there yesterday and again today as Niseko continues to Power.
    Yesterday was off the hook here Niseko. Between 7am and 3pm in the village, it lay down 30cm in that 8hr period with more again higher on the mountain.

    Still snowing steadily this morning with day 24 of snowfall in a row and this last 24hr period to 7am delivering a further 34-45 cm from base to top. 38 snow days from the last 44.

    Its super cold. Temps out there this morning has the mercury at minus 13-14 C at base and 15-16 C below zero at mid to upper mountain. Kit essentials today..Snorkel, Face mask and layers.
    Jetstream is out from the WNW with velocity of 10-25k down low and 20-40k high on the hill with chill factor still way low, forecast at 30 C below zero.

    The outlook is for snow to continue today and tomorrow at this stage with perhaps a break in the cycle coming Wednesday and maybe even something they call sun !
    We shall see.

    Never Break Roped Off areas or Gates that have been Closed.

    Fat boards are the equipment again for today so have a safe, fun Sunday and as always....Please Ride Safely
