Good morning from Niseko.

Well, we got some rain yesterday down at base yesterday with some snow higher up, and this morning... I have some snow to report down to base. I have just measured ever so slightly over 5cm of it. Hurray!

I wonder how much more there might be up on them there hills. Post-wondering, I think I am going to go check it out.

A few lifts are now being rested - today there will be 8 lifts operating across the mountain, as I have noted below.

After saying how good Hirafu are at detailed updates in my report yesterday, this morning they haven't updated yet. Doh! I'll come back and update that below information if there are any changes a little later.
