Into another week - only three more left now! - and it's another fine morning here in Niseko. Not quite as bright and blue are yesterday but contrary to the forecast it is a reasonably warm morning here, definitely a bit warmer than yesterday morning. There's more of a wind as well which has been affecting lifts a bit early on...

At Hirafu the Ace Quad Lift is moving along with Ace No3 pair lift, which seems to be open because they have the King No3 and No4 lifts on standby due to the wind early on. That may well change this morning so worth checking if you are out there of course. The Gondola at Hirafu is of course closed again Monday to Friday, but will be open again for the weekends and Golden Week.

At Annupuri, the four lifts seem to be moving as planned.

Still on for some rain (chance of snow higher up) tomorrow, followed by things warming up in the second half of the week.
