Snow finally stopped falling and the sky is clear at 7 am. I went to Niseko Village yesterday. There were still tons of fresh powder and also groomers were fantastic.
I’ve heard that Super course in Grand Hirafu opened partly yesterday and Grant Hirafu and Niseko Village is connected at upper area. Also night skiing in Grand Hirafu started last night. Now I am waiting for “Limited course” in Niseko Village to open. I love this course because it’s steep and long ungroomed course.
Next few days might be a little break time until next storm is coming.
