More light Snow for Niseko - 8cm New at Top with 4cm at base - West @15k at Top - Minus 4c at Top with 0c at base @7am

By Rod - 4pm JST

A further 4-8cm new from base to top today kept the turns fresh across the three remaining areas open for Niseko. Temps well down for this time of year with minus 4c high up and a light westerly of 15k. 8 lifts operating across Hirafu, Niseko Village and Annupuri delivering just enough service for top to base turns.

Perhaps a few random flurries high up tomorrow yet generally now the week ahead has temps on the rise and plenty of sunshine on the models for the Shiribeshi region. Down the bottom of Hirafu is pretty scratched up now so down-loading from the top of Ace Quad is the mode for most. Annupuri has perhas a tad more base at their lower lift level. The week ahead will see the base go pretty quick now, yet up top has around 250cm depth. Should be enough to see out last lifts May 6th.

Rusutsu lifts are now closed, as is Hanazono. From now till the 6th of May we'll be down to limited lifts across Hirafu, Niseko Village and Annupuri. This will depend on snow pack and ..World Events.
