Cold temps and light snow falling here in Niseko this morning with a top up of 5-6 cm that fell in the early hrs. Present temps of 9c below zero at top with minus 4c at base. WNW jet-stream at 25k high up and calm to 5k down low which should provide good all round conditions for the 3-4 upper mountain lifts that are scheduled to open today.

The outlook is great folks with some intense pulses around lunchtime today. The Sunday to Wednesday snowfall program is looking really good - Further down the week, most weather models and JMA synoptics are showing steady snowfall to continue till around Christmas day at this stage. Keep it going Ullr....
