Jumbo Powder in Niseko

After the recent deluge of snow – 64cm in the last week – yesterday seemed like a good time to test the snow quality on the upper mountain before the predicted warm front moved into the region.

An early hike with Shouya Grigg from Sekkastyle yielded some spectacular turns!

Conditions on the upper mountain were very deep – over a meter at the top of Jumbo. Chances are the snow base will stay in good condition until the resort opens.
