Yesterday did get slightly above freezing on the lower mountain and the snow has packed down considerably. Last night a band of precipitation moved rapidly through the region adding up to 10cm fresh snow with 2 hours. Since then though it has fined up to a partly cloudy day with only the occasional snow shower. A bit heavier snowfall is expected to come through later tonight.
A little snow will continue through to Tues and then it is expected to mostly fine up and get relatively mild as a high pressure system moves to our east and directs a southerly airstream over us.
So far this Feb Kutchan has received over 2.3m of snow making it the biggest Feb since the 04/05 season which had over 3.3m. So far for the whole season Kutchan has had up around 8.5m, 04/05 at the time had over 11.5m (and ended up with over 14m by April). So it's not been an epic season in terms of total snowfall but with snowdepths up over 4m around the higher parts of the mountain it's still not too bad.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 350cm
Bottom - 170cm

Niseko Village:
Top - 380cm
Bottom - 180cm

Annupuri:
Top - 430cm
Bottom - 200cm
