niseko backcounrty check

with a week passed since out last check at Goshiki Onsen and 50cm of recorded snowfall in Annupuri the snow base up at Goshiki now measures 70cm.

Today ii was 4˚C and raining up at Goshiki, but this will do very little to a snowpack of 70cm. Snow in the forecast at Niseko town level over the next few days so upper mountain is looking good for this time of year.

images below taken at same spots as last week, you can see the snowbanks are growing, check here for last week.
