Holiday Niseko Accommodation Snowed-in!
Our Holiday Niseko office is snowed in as well as all of our accommodation in Grand Hirafu! But with amazing effort of snow removal, guests are able to get out to ski and snowboard the deep powder with ease this Chinese New Year. The last days of this month have shown everyone what Hokkaido Japan can do and January 2011's snow depths have buried last season's mark! Base depths around the Niseko are deeper than normal for this time of year and the village is hyped.
It's February 1st and the current snow depths are 300cm at the top station of Annupuri, 400cm up top Niseko Village and 450cm on top of Grand Hirafu and Hanazono! The upper lifts have been closed for days due to no-visibility and high avalanche danger from the three day super storm. The steeps and trees in the lower to mid-mountain have kept everyone happy with this 2 meters of fresh powder! hint... (Niseko Gondola to Superstition and Mori-No chair to Misoshiru)
It will be powder heaven when the weather chills and Niseko United starts running the top lifts and opening the gates! Holiday Niseko
