1pm update:

A special update here with the news that Niseko Grand Hirafu plan to open from tomorrow, Tuesday 1st December.

Hurray!

The plan is for the Ace Number 3 pair lift to be servicing the Center Course which is higher up on the resort, with the Ace Number 2 Center Four lift taking people up to that area. 5 hour lift ticket is 2000 yen for adults and 1000 yen for children and seniors. The Center Four lift should get moving at 8:30am. That's the news I have for the moment, there may be more by the time I post my next report tomorrow morning.

Photos refreshed as well with this update other information remaining the same.

Earlier on...

Good morning from a sunny Niseko region. Yes, the sun is out and it's a beautiful morning.

The snow that we have had since my report yesterday - another 20cm after continuing through the day and until last night - is giving us that feeling of a real need to strap the boots on and get out to enjoy it. But not quite yet... maybe. Oh, the uncertainty of early season!

No word yet from Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri, who are as keen to get started as we are, and I need to get myself over to Sapporo today so posting quite early. It shouldn't be far off now though.

Forecast says there might be more snow on the way later on in the day today and then look to the end of the week for more after that.

Planned opening dates for the Niseko resorts:

Niseko Grand Hirafu: as soon as there's enough snow
Niseko Annupuri: as soon as there's enough snow
Niseko Village: Tuesday 1st December
Niseko HANAZONO: Saturday 5th December

'Nighta' should be starting on Saturday 12th December
