THE powder machine that is Niseko may have had a bit of a spluttering start to the season, but the Powder Express has slipped into overdrive and is at full throttle.
With more than 2m of snow falling by the time this magazine went to print (we can’t even guess what it will by the time the mag comes out!?), conditions on the mountain coulnd’t be better.
This year has had a similar lead up to that experienced during the 04/05 season. A bit slow to start, but once it got going it barely stopped snowing for the next few months and ended up with 15m+ total snowfall.
Hopefully this season will continue along the same lines and we can look forward to many more days floating down through waist-deep Niseko powder.
