A good fall of 25-30cm last night and still snowing heavily out there. This fall has pushed the snowdepth up high well over the metre mark. More and more courses will be opening as the week progresses. Today they've got a couple of chairs opening at Niseko Village for beginners. From what I've been told they are allowing top to bottom skiing over at Annupuri. Here in Hirafu though it doesn't appear that they are allowing skiing out to the base just yet. With how heavy the snow is falling out there at the moment though I can't imagine it will be much longer. If you're heading up to the Ace #3 lift beware that it's a reasonably slow lift and quite exposed. It's cold up there and wind chills will be well below -20 degrees so make sure you really cover up, especially the face or you may risk frostbite.
The snow quality is light and dry but will be wind packed in more exposed areas. Still it's really looking much more like it should at this time of year with everything covered in lots of snow and the snowdepths are now getting up near average for this time. Plenty more snow forecast for the rest of the week.
