It’s very white outside. We had a great Sunday in all Niseko united resorts. There was not icy bottom anymore. Just soft fluffy powder everywhere:)
Niseko’s got more fresh powder this morning, probably another 30 cm on the mountain. Grand Hirafu finally opened their lower area yesterday. Now I wonder when Niseko Village opens their Gondola… If it opens, I will go and have fresh tracks! Let’s keep your eyes on the latest lift status.
The low pressure which gave us a precious weekend is going away. Have a great powder day!
