Just over 5cm of fresh snow since my report yesterday. Yesterday it was a mix of light snow falling and strong winds at times during the daytime. This morning light snow falling once again with complete cloud cover. As of 9am it is 1C here in the Hirafu village area. Less wind than yesterday here at base, with winds up to 7m/s reported by Niseko Grand Hirafu.

It looks like ongoing light snowfall is the most we can expect over the coming few days. We'll just have to see whether the resorts continue to open up more gradually or wait until there's a considerable snowfall. For the moment, operations remain unchanged this morning.

In this very early part of the season I'll keep a note of which lifts are moving in the reports below
