Short hikes in the backcountry around Niseko are always rewarding, even more so when nobody is around and fresh untracked is abound.

Carving Up Iwaonupuri


An easy hike from Goshiki of about 90 minutes, faster if you are fit, Iwaonupuri has a few steep runs off the peak. Here an unknown rider carves up a nice open bowl.

60cm in 2 days, what now?


with 60cm measured up at Goshiki yesterday afternoon and continued snowfall for the last 24hours the upper mountains will now have a good start on the season, with northerly wind flow generated from the systems at present we would say the the snow snow will just keep coming. see our last post (and our why does niseko get so much snow page) for explanations.
