I can see some small patches of blue sky up there at times, but it is generally a cloudy morning here in Niseko. Visibility is considerably better than yesterday though when it really was poor up on the mountain.

In addition to the normal planned lift operations, today at Grand Hirafu the Ace Family lift is also operating from 9am until 2pm - I believe that this is due to student trips at the moment, but anyone with a lift ticket for the resort can use the lift today.

From tomorrow onwards through the weekend we can expect settled conditions. Some cloud, some sun - the forecast for the weekend in particular is clear and sunny with temperatures rising into double digits. After that, it might get slightly colder again from Monday bringing with it some rain and wind.
