The snowfalls eased last night but there was enough yesterday to finally push the snowdepth at Annupuri up to 4m. If we get a decent amount of snow over this weekend all areas of the resort up high could crack this milestone, as long as the wind doesn't get too strong and blow if all off.
Currently there's light snow falling but as the day progresses this should get a lot heavier. Temps will get a little mild and the snow will be heavier than what we've had over the last few days. As the low pressure system moves through though temps will cool again.
Strong winds are already affecting the peak area and access there will be restricted today. Most lifts are able to operate this morning but as the day progresses and the winds increase expect to see most of the higher lifts close down.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 360cm
Bottom - 180cm

Niseko Village:
Top - 360cm
Bottom - 180cm

Top - 400cm
Bottom - 200cm
