A handy top up overnight of 2-4cm after yesterdays 6-10cm here in Niseko where a last blast of Winter from Ullr has plenty of guests and locals getting amongst what may be the last decent batch of pow with all 4 areas of the resort open. In about 10days time will see Hanazono and Niseko Village close their lift system for this season while both Annupuri and Hirafu will keep a few lifts each open till May 7...at this stage !
Current temps of minus 7c at top and 1c below zero at base. Jetstream from the NW of 20-35k at upper mountain and 5k down low.
We can expect a few passing random snowy pulses in the forecast till later Friday at this stage followed by a mostly sunny weekend. A little more new for touring or carve the groomers so have fun. Still a little breeze at higher elevations today so keep your eye on our live lifts button below to see what gets going.
If heading out any gates today for touring...extra caution generally from here in for back and side country areas as the Spring Season progresses. Base pack down to the ground is warming up with more glide-cracks appearing - things are on the move ! Best not push your luck. Have fun and go safely. Never break rope lines or gates that are closed. Please read the avalanche report and adhere to the Niseko Rules and Advisories. Red button below.
More Niseko Action Images and Stunning landscape shots below to keep you inspired - next to our Alpen Ridge Condominiums Live Cam at the base of The Family lift. Stay tuned...we'll keep you updated daily till early May 2017 with the very latest snow, weather and lift operations from our Hirafu Village Niseko HQ.
