Hello from a still snow-less Hirafu as we await all of the action to begin.

Yesterday, Niseko Grand Hirafu resort announced the inevitable postponed opening of the resort. The original plan of course was this coming Saturday, but it's now basically a case of 'as soon as there's enough snow'.

It's definitely colder this morning, but for the moment quite a lot of blue sky, out to the east towards Mt Yotei anyway - there's more cloud over the mountains in this direction, but no snowfall. The forecast is looking more encouraging though going forward over the weekend with cold conditions and a good chance of snow... how much remains to be seen of course.

I will be bringing you news of any snow of course as and when. From this weekend I am on standby for daily duties throughout the season.

I hope you will join me every day. Please do tell your friends about these Niseko Now reports too - the more readership we have, the more pressure on me to deliver! ;)
