Yesterday was a fine day out there. I had some deep fun anyway. I have heard a few comments from people saying the snow was perhaps slightly heavier than we are used to in optimal conditions here, and that was probably about right... but I think we are very spoilt here in Niseko with snow conditions. It was pretty fantastic by any standards if you ask me! The thought of things getting even better... :)

It was snowing as well and we have had another 40cm of fresh snow to add to the tally which has to be around 3m now for the season. Calendar check... December 11th. Oh yes!

Blue skies above me this morning as I write the report. There is some cloud here and there but generally clear and everywhere looking great. It is currently about 0C. Some winds are hanging around but we seem to be moving out of the storm now amnd over the next few days we might see more clearer skies and a break in the snowfall.

At Hirafu, the Swinging Monkey lift got off to a late start this morning, but opened just before 10am. The Kind Number 3 Triple lift has been operating at slow speed but other than that operations seem to be normal there, while the Hanazono No3 quad lift in the Hanazono area is also operating on slow.

At the Niseko Village resort area, the Niseko Gondola has been operating at slow speed, and over at Annupuri their Gondola is still not moving today.
