So yesterday wasn't a particularly nice day. Lots of rain which has obviously not helped the snow out there and washed a fair bit away - base of Hirafu now on 30cm. Oh well, at least it will have compacted.

As if by magic though, in these circumstances, Annupuri are going to be starting up the Jumbo Number 1 quad lift over there. Niseko Village are doing some checking on the course by the Gondola and so that lift isn't moving early on.

Happily this morning it is colder - though not mad cold - and a light cover of snow welcoming us this morning. It is snowing lightly, cloudy and a bit of a wind as I write this report.

It's still looking positive ahead though starting tomorrow, though I must say that some forecasts do seem to have downgraded the forecast somewhat (ie. less snow forecast than before). We'll just have to wait and see, and I will of course let you know how it pans out.

Grand Hirafu:
Ace Family Pair
Ace Number 3 Pair
Ace Number 2 Quad Center Four
King Number 3 Triple
