It’s sunny and warm(er) this morning. It was super windy last night. I went to Niseko Village yesterday. Snow was fresh at Wonder land (top lift). I could see old tracks under 900 m line, however snow was super deep and amazing. I had great runs at Mizuno and Super station.
Last night’s storm has changed snow shapes and conditions at mountains. Snow might be packed hardly at some part, snow cornice has grown and it’s easy to break. Please read Niseko avalanche report carefully, accidents happen after storm. I might go Annupuri and enjoy groomers under the blue sky.
I can see the next storm in next week, probably around Wednesday.
