Another clear day today. Not quite a blue and an hazy kind of look to things this morning in Niseko. There's more of a wind this morning though which has been affecting some lifts early on in the morning.

All lifts moving as normal at Grand Hirafu after a bit of a later than planned start due to strong winds up top.

Of course today seems Niseko Village open again for the last week of the season and a bit earlier on the Niseko Gondola was moving but the top Wonderland chair on hold due to wind. Over at Annupuri the top Jumbo lift was also on standby - if conditions improve there we can expect them to open up quickly, though the forecast does seem to be saying that we can expect the wind to be with us at least into the afternoon. Just keep it in mind.

Tomorrow should see more sun and a bit less windy conditions, so hopefully everywhere that plans to be open will be able to.
