The forecast was right for today as we start the day with blue skies and fine weather in Niseko. It is going to be a clear and warm day here and we might see the temperature rise to close to 10C later this afternoon. Tomorrow is forecast to be pretty much more of the same really.

The Hirafu Gondola is of course operating today and tomorrow as well for the weekend, and so we now have four lifts moving at Grand Hirafu and four lifts over at Annupuri (Jumbo No2 lift is open today). All lifts are running as normal on this fine morning.

It feels strange for a weekend to be quiet in Niseko, but that's mid-April for you I suppose! For those who are here and make it out on the slopes, I hope you have lots of spring fun out there.
