Niseko’s got another 20 cm of white snow. We are living in a dream. I went to Niseko Village because they finally opened Niseko gondola yesterday! There was plenty of fresh powder. I had 3 great long runs, every time snow was fresh.
The weather forecast looks very good, snowing everyday in this week.
