Good morning from Hirafu and I have some snow to report. Yey!

3cm of it as well here outside my place so hopefully and very probably a bit more than that in higher areas.

And it's keeping real cold too. Brrr. Under zero still at Hirafu is reporting a temperature of -5 degrees on it's upper areas.

Nice!

There was a bit of blue sky to see earlier on but right now as I write this it's generally mostly cloudy. Might get some blue sky and sun again though as the weather decides to do for the day.

With not much of a wind at all, I can't see why the planned lifts would not be able to open this morning.

So it should be good to find that new snow up there. I'm going to go and take a look... in the name of research of course.

I have changed and updated the information below to show what lifts are planned to be operating at the various resorts along with planned closing dates. All subject to change of course...
