It was a great day to head to Mt Yotei with not a cloud in the sky.

With new snowfalls lacking over the last couple of days and the great weather, the snowpack had compacked making the hike up easier and quicker than normal.

After a 4 hour hike to the summit, we were tempted to board into the crater, but with an approaching turn in the weather we decided to had down.

The first 500m of wind blown crust made the desired GS turns hard to come by, but the sun affected slopes were more forgiving. The surprise of the day was some ankle deep powder below tree line on the sheltered slopes.

Great snow, great lines, great weather = GREAT Turns. Sean from Jackson Hole, USA., was impressed with the Niseko snow and the untracked lines we found, even with the crowds... Check out our short video of the tour at https://youtu.be/hHIfbBeRUts.
