Better news this morning as we have another 15cm of snow to report in Hirafu. It's colder too, so feeling much more winter-like than it has been this last week.

Grand Hirafu has added 25cm to it's upper snow depth number this morning and as I mentioned last night there are opening the King Number 3 triple lift, Swinging Monkey lift and also the Gondola. With Hanazono opening this morning as well it means there's more choice for those getting out there - though still limited and remains upper areas only.

That's all the resort news I can gather this morning. Expect more to gradually open as the snow arrives.

Snow is forecast to continue today and into tomorrow - at the moment it is just snowing lightly. Little snowmen graphics are lined up on all of the forecasts for the coming week.

Please do check the main page of the site and our Forums for news of the chance to win 10 Niseko Grand Hirafu / Hanazono lift tickets in the first SnowJapan Giveaway of the season.
