The clouds have been with us overnight in Niseko and still with us with a touch of sleet with even some snow falling on the mountain - no personal confirmation on that, but Grand Hirafu are reporting light snow falling up top this morning and it is definitely colder than it was yesterday morning. There's less of a wind as well, though visibility will be worse up there.

According to the local forecast the current conditions should clear up pretty quickly followed by that run of clear and sunny days we have been expecting. Should be sunny conditions for the weekend.

The lifts at both Hirafu and Annupuri are open as planned this morning, as noted below.

The Hirafu Gondola will be open for the weekend as well as the current lifts.
