The weather is messing things up a bit on this first day of the second half of Golden Week. Strong winds, cloudy - and with rain forecast for later on and into tomorrow.

Because of the weather conditions, Niseko Village is closed today while the lifts at the other two resort areas are not running as normal at the time of writing.

Grand Hirafu have the Ace No3 lift moving this morning as well as the No2 quad lift. The other lifts including the Gondola are on standby as the resort waits for the winds to possibly calm down. The lack of snow on the lower areas of the resort now also mean that you can't ski or board right down to the base any more... you need to get the No2 quad or Gondola (when it's operating) back down.

Over at Annupuri the Jumbo No4 lift is on standby.
