Hello from Niseko and it's another not-too-nice morning here.

Rain is falling (not seeing any snow) and there's some stronger winds up on the mountain as well which are preventing Annupuri from opening early on. Less wind forecast for later on and so fingers crossed.

Tomorrow cloud is forecast.

If you want sunshine, looks like we need to wait until Wednesday.

From today, the Ace Family Pair lift is closed leaving us with three lifts scheduled to be operating at Niseko Grand Hirafu.
