Morning all.

It's a kind of overcast start to the day though sun is forecast so perhaps things will brighten up.

Strong winds are affecting the top King Number 4 lift at Niseko Grand Hirafu at the start of the day.

The forecast is for mild conditions today but later on as things get colder we have a bit of rain on the forecast and perhaps even a little snow too going into tomorrow.

I will of course let you know how that goes tomorrow morning.

Niseko Grand Hirafu is now making a point of mentioning that with the snow retreating from lower slopes, the lower slope is getting narrow and not suitable for 'non experts' - and recommended them to get the Ace Center Four lift back down to base.
