*27cm of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24hrs in Hirafu Village. At 7:00 today the temperature was -4°C.
Ridiculous amounts of snowfall just keeps on coming down and today might just be time to break out the powder snorkels!!
With no sign of a let up in the snowfall which is actually due to peak on WEDNESDAY at this rate we could be in for a record breaking December of snowfall! Night skiing started last night in Grand Hirafu which has extended the total amount of lift access enjoyment to 12 glorious hours 8:30 – 20:30!
Despite the excitement that awaits for those of us about to hit the mountain please pause and remember that skiing and snowboarding are inherently dangerous sports. Ski or ride within your limits and watch out for your friends and other people on the mountain and please respect the local Niseko rules.
