*16cm of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24hrs in Hirafu Village. At 6:15 today the temperature was -5°C. Just when we thought the snow was going to ease off a bit – BAM dumping again! Yesterday we were treated to some patches of sunshine in the morning – which literally last 5 mins each time then it went back to snowfall. The snowfall eased off in the afternoon and into the evening. Early this morning the tap has been jammed back on and it is dumping again! Reset after reset – life is good here in Niseko.
