Backcountry Check in Niseko

Yesterday, November 25th, we decided to go back up to Goshiki to see how much snow had fallen up higher on the mountain. With about 28cm at our check point in Annupuri recorded over 2 days we were wondering how much had settled in up in Goshiki. What we measure was about 32cm, note that this is settled snow and that our measurements was over 2 seperate days of freshly fallen snow.

We also took a couple of picture to compare to when we were up there on the 23rd of November , you can check that here.

With more snow forecast it would be our guess the resort will open very soon but as always be a few more snowfall before backcountry is ready.
