Niseko Snow Report, 23 December 2011

Once again it’s on!

*10.1cm of fresh snow has fallen since yesterday morning and at 8:20 today the temperature was -2°C. The snow didn’t start to fall until last night and there’s a weather front coming in from the sea of Japan that looks like it will be dumping snow on the village all morning.

What’s happening today

There is almost a meter of snow due to fall on Niseko in the next few days and strong winds are also on the forecast. With this in mind riding some of the higher ski runs like Dynamic and Champion maybe out of the question. But there should still be plenty of fun to be had lower down the resort on Green, Silver Dream and Junior.
