Fresh snow!

Yes, don't get over excited - just a few few cm - but new snow all the same. And it is colder as well this morning.

We had some particularly strong winds yesterday and it is still very windy this morning. Unfortunately, it's limited lifts this morning and it's actually easier to tell you what is moving as the resorts open:

Niseko Grand Hirafu - Ace Family, Ace No2 Center Quad, Holiday No1, King No2, Swinging Monkey
Niseko Village - Banzai chair only
Niseko Annupuri - Jumbo No1 and No2 lifts only

All top lifts on hold as we hope for the wind to decrease. Not sure if we can realistically expect much there I'm afraid. It's windy.

Official snow depth numbers at time of writing:

Grand Hirafu / Hanazono:
Top - 330cm
Base - 110cm

Niseko Village:
Top - 320cm
Base - 100cm

Annupuri:
