Sky is clear and I can see all mountains clearly. We’ve got another 10 cm of new snow yesterday’s afternoon.
Niseko Village opened their gondola yesterday. I missed the opening as I was too tired after enjoying powder at Grand Hirafu, so I will go today and check how the snow condition is there!
Warm weather is forecast for next two days. Hopefully it won’t rain.
