Extremely chilly in town this morning you could almost smell Siberia in the cold, my thermometer at home was hovering between -19 and -20 and everything had that nice crystalline sparkle you get at really cold temperatures. Winds are fair but with strong gusts at the moment as we sit in this weather system.

Not much new snow since last report but as I write this it has started coming down for the past 5 minutes or so.

This weekend will get very busy in town as the first big groups start to arrive, great timing too as Hanazono is due to open up fully tomorrow in conjunction with the first night skiing of the season and the inaugural operation of the Hirafu Gondola. Things really getting going now.

Current lift operations at time of writing (subject to change depending on conditions)

Hirafu family pair, Ace Quad, Ace Pair 3 and Hooded pair 3 running

Gondola, jumbo pair and Pair 2 and Annupuri Pair 3 running.

Niseko Village:
Banzai and Community chair and Gondola running

Hanazono lift 3 running
