i don't think you need to look that hard to find snow. was dumpin 8 days straight when i was there last week.

You would be surprised how much more snow you get when you have a car. The snow is very localised here. It can dump 80cm at one place and 40klm away might only get 10cm. This happened numerous times this trip with niseko being the looser.
Something big is coming this afternoon btw.

Kiroro has some nice bits but is painfully flat. I had the deepest day of my trip at kiroro with powder well over 1m deep but the place simply does not have the fall line to accommodate such deep snow. Teine is a much better bet in the deep stuff as it has steeps.
