This morning we have some more nice blue skies over Niseko. The difference today though is that there are some pretty strong winds blowing around on the mountain and it's affecting lifts.

Winds are affecting the lifts at Grand Hirafu with the Gondola, King 3 and King 4 lifts on hold and the Holiday No1 lift operating instead (as well as the planned Ace No2 lift).

Lifts over at Annupuri seem to be operating as normal this morning.

Still looks like we will be seeing rain later on today or overnight and also tomorrow as well. As I have said in a recent report around Wednesday we can expect temperatures to really rise and things start to get properly warm.
