What’s happening today
With the lack of any recent snowfall it would be a good idea to get up on the mountain as soon as possible and enjoy a few freshly groomed runs – we will head over to Niseko Village and ride Snorkle and Wonderland a few times before riding top to bottom via Namara. After putting in the work on the groomers we will head over to Hanazono Ski Ground to check out the action at the Hanazono Freestyle Series – Jib Session
Another great free stlye event happening in upper Hirafu above the Welcome Center from 5pm at Herbies is their first rail jam competition of the year – there will also be a huge Toboggan jump session so get up there and check it out.
Today is the coldest day of the the year according to the according to the traditional Japanese calendar which divides the seasons in 24 periods.
And here are a couple shots from yesterday in case you missed any of the recent updates from Niseko.
