There was not a lot of fresh snow yesterday. High winds hit the mountain around noon and closed all the top lifts. Even the Higashiama gondola was shut . The Ace thermometer read -14 at that time while the one at the bottom of King gondola read -5. It was an extremely cold day with the lower area of Hirafu crowded with skiers and boarders who had run out of options to find untracked.

Today is another extreme winter day in Hirafu. The local avalanche report says 30 centimeter has fallen at the base and temps will drop to -18. There is extreme avalanche danger as the wind has blown hard since yesterday. The high pressure that was over Niseko yesterday has moved north east and we are sitting over a low trough but it would appear that Mount Annapuri has it's own snow agenda as it defies the overall weather pattern.

At 10am this morning all lifts are operational except Hanazona 3. Some lifts are running slowly but there should be some great powder to be had all over the mountain. I will let you know tomorrow.
