No new snow fall and cloudy this morning. When I went to Niseko village yesterday, the sky was clear up and the sun was shinning. I didn’t expect powder but it was hidden in the forest. I enjoyed two long powder run under the blue sky!
It’s getting hard to find powder however if you hike a couple of hours, you can find it. If you don’t know where you should go, skiing guides will take you there. There are many guiding company in Niseko. It’s easy and safe way to find hidden powder.
South wind is telling us the next snow fall is coming very soon.
