Hirafu Resort Niseko 24hr Period to 7am - 19-22cm New ++ from base to top - Minus 15c at Top and 9c at Base - Snowing

Well..Niseko and this region of Hokkaido doing what it does best. No faffing today folks with a further 19-22cm of deep dry new silk at village level for the 24hr period and most of this falling overnight. Add this to the 20cm + that fell in the prvious 24hr period and more at higher levels after a Saturday at Rusutsu where our guided guests were treated to the Zoo in excellent form with knee deep quality everywhere.

Snow coming down nicely as this goes to post where today will be superb with WNW jet stream of 20-30k at top and 5-15k at base. Present temps holding steady at minus 15c at mid to levels and 9c below zero at base. A fine dining recipe for epic Hokkaido Powder.

The outlook is very encouraging with plenty of snow forecast for most days over the next week as a 2nd low pressure cell comes into play. Low wind speed today should hopefully allow plenty of lift access - fingers crossed for the gates to heaven ! Have a great day and go safely. Keep updated with our live lift status button below along with the latest advisories from the avalanche report. Please adhere to the Niseko Rules and Never break rope lines or closed gates.

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.
