Spring conditions are in full force here for this easter good Friday. With the huge accumlative base we have here in Niseko the recent warm weather has had a minimal effect on the snowbase on the resort and conditions on the groomed runs are excellent. The same cannot be said around the village where the melting snow is revealing all kinds of debris. Although Japanese people generally don’t celebrate easter there has been an influx of holiday makers from Singapore and Hong Kong to enjoy the long weekend.
If you’re heading backcountry:
• Always check the avalanche report
• And familiarise yourself with the Niseko Rules
