A welcome 5cm of snow on the doorstep this morning. It actually didn’t seem to snow very much at all through the night – I woke up at 5am and there was just a dusting outside. So it dumped most of that 5cm between 5am-9am.
Selected lifts are now back open at Hirafu, Niseko Village and Annupuri. Looking ahead and the forecast is still saying we should get consistent snow right through until Monday.
>> Conditions observed 9am at Village level:
Overnight snow 5cm
Snow depth 30cm
>> Conditions reported at 820m (Hirafu midway station):
Snow depth 95cm
