Coming to a snow resort this late in the season is a gamble. Just a few degrees more warmth and any precip is rain and you’re waterskiing and walking around in a mud bath. Not Niseko. Not this year. This March has been fantastic and the 30cms plus of super dry snow in the last 24 hours is proof of that. It’s almost April yet faceshots were the order of the day yesterday – and because there’s NO-ONE around they could be found all day! If you gambled & are in town now, you hit the jackpot… if you thought about coming over but you’re reading this anywhere else the world, sorry, but you lost big!
And then last night the snow really came down… In short – today will be an unbelievable day. The forecast today is for cold temps, a bit of sun, no wind, and more snow. God conditions should continue thru to round Thursday when another system could bring a temporary warming ahead of another good fall of snow.
All the usual powder haunts are great, though generally the higher you are the better.
Peak gates today should open at 10.00 – check here for an Avvie Report and the latest backcountry info.
Enjoy today – you’ve won!
