Niseko Snow Report, 21-22 April 2012

Classic Spring Action and a Gale

*0cm of fresh snow has fallen since the 9th of April, conditions have remained warm over the last 2 weeks and today the temperature is 9°c. The consistent snowfall we all enjoyed through December and January created a very solid snow pack with very few unstable layers which is now yielding a great base for spring skiing with top to bottom runs still to be enjoyed.

What’s Happening Today

There hasn’t been much variation for us and have been mainly been skiing and boarding around Niseko Hirafu following the path of least resistance. At this time of year getting up early for the groomed runs is the way to go and that is what we have been doing Nikabe, Furiko and Alpen have all been epic.
