Well, not the best of mornings here in Niseko I'm afraid. Strong winds and rain this morning. What's more, the weather is preventing all but the Ace Family lift at Grand Hirafu to be closed as of 8:30am this morning. If things calm down then we can expect more of the planned lifts to open. Though I think people here for this part of Golden Week might choose to 'do something else' today!

The rain might continue into tomorrow morning, hopefully clearing up sooner than later. A chance of more stable and an appearance from the sun on the last day of the season, Sunday. Let's hope so.
