I remember saying I was excited yesterday.

With heavy rain falling outside right now, I can't say excited is how I am feeling just now! Oh dear, it's not very nice this morning I'm afraid. To say the least. Yuck.

With the horrid rain situation this morning, I don't even think the fact that strong winds are also stopping pretty much all of the lifts from starting up will even upset that many people.

Today is most definitely one of those days to do something else!

As of 8:15am it looks like Annupuri, Grand Hirafu and Hanazono will be at a standstill come opening time. Niseko Village seem to indicate that the lower lifts might be moving. (Updated below).

Happily, this lot won't be lasting. It should be getting colder as the day goes on, and with it hopefully the rain will turn to snow. And hopefully lots of it over the next few days. Winds are going to remain strong.

So let's try not to sulk and look forward to a lovely soft and fluffy fresh deep layer of snow... (we'll need it!)
