Good morning from Niseko.

As expected we enjoyed lovely clear skies through the day yesterday with a few pleasing scattered white clouds appearing in the evening.

This morning - we're back to the blue skies!

It had to happen at some point... the lower courses at Niseko Grand Hirafu are now closed, meaning that you now need to ride the Ace Number 2 Center Four quad lift back down to base.

Information on what courses remain open at both Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri has been updated below.

Hirafu Gondola is once again taking a weekday break (part timer!) but should be back open for Golden Week starting on Saturday.
