Well, what a weekend that was!

Over half a metre of snow across Friday and Saturday offered up incredible riding conditions for those brave enough to face the bitter temps. Sorry to all those stuck abroad watching this play out through phone screens, but it really has been a bumper start to the 20/21 snow season here in Hokkaido. (And please note the general SnowJapan message on the right hand side of this page).

Last night brought another 11cm of snow to base level.

Winds are lighter today but the ambient temperature remains low, ranging from -9 to -15 depending on where you’re at on the mountain.

The forecast suggests snowy conditions today, followed by a few days of dry, warmer conditions (if -5 can be considered ‘warmer’) before it snaps cold again and new snow will return in time for Christmas Day.
