Welcome to March! Spring Skiing is now in session.

And the downside to spring skiing is unwanted temperature variations. True to the forecast, the temps warmed up to about +5 C around midnight for a few hours. Unfortunately, this was after about 10 cm of snow had already fallen. Naturally, the snowfall turned to rain, then temps went below freezing and everything hardened up to a nice shiny crust, with rain-soaked snow underneath.

It's not good today. Hard, crusty, wet and other negative adjectives.

Still, the weather is better than Niseko right now, with a bit of sun shining through, and relatively light winds. Good chance to work on your ski-in-all-conditions skills.

Think Snow. Think Powder. Think spring skiing.
