10 cm of new snow has fallen in Niseko town. And now it just started snowing again.

Japan is having a long weekend, today is a compensatory holiday of Emperor’s birthday yesterday (not Christmas holiday). So that the resorts will be crowded. Top lifts are opened but all gates are closed still. Snow condition might be a bit tricky today. Fresh soft snow is on hard icy snow. Please control your speed and ride safely. All we want for Christmas is more snow!!

I asked Santa for more snow so I’ll be a good girl and wait.
