I'm happy to be able to report another big delivery of snow to report this morning. It has been snowing through the day yesterday and overnight as well, the result being 40cm or so of fresh snow down here in the village.

Conditions out on the slopes yesterday were really great and it will only be better tomorrow. Better visibility too, for the moment anyway, as right now there's lots of blue sky and sun to enjoy. Snow is forecast on and off for the day so it may well not last long.

Niseko Annupuri will be opening up in a short while at 9am this morning - they plan to have the Jumbo Number 1 lift running and the Paradise and Junior Courses should be open.

Operations at Niseko Village seem to be remain unchanged this morning, but more courses opening at Grand Hirafu with the lower part of Green Course, Alpen, Kokutai and the Detour for Beginners now officially open up. Over at Hanazono, Stairway to Heaven, Legend of Shinya and Crystal Garden have joined the party.

Wrap up well and enjoy!
