Good morning from Hirafu.

There's still a bit of wind around this morning but Niseko Annupuri and Niseko Grand Hirafu are planning to get their lifts moving as normal from 8:30 this morning. Hopefully we'll get a proper full day in today.

Just cloudy this morning, with a few bits of blue sky visible. Forecasts seem to be pointing to clearer skies later on today, along with a high temperature reaching double digits.

Generally settled weather forecast for the coming week with it gradually getting warmer.
