Good morning.

This morning was of course supposed to be the first of the season, but lets not dwell on that! I get the feeling that there's more than a few people happy to have the extra time to get ready for the big rush. Hopefully people didn't come here from afar specificially for the opening.

For the record, Niseko Grand Hirafu as of yesterday were reporting 20cm of snow at base and 50cm at the peak.

As you can see on the photos below, there's less snow there at the base than there was yesterday with more ground clearly showing through... so the conditions yesterday didn't do us any favours.

I am actually over in the Sapporo area this morning where it's cloudy with a bit of rain at times, and that's what I am hearing it is like back over in Niseko. Cloud and rain is forecast for the day with a high temperature approaching 10 degrees this afternoon.

Things are expected to clear up and cool down from tomorrow with sun forecast and a slightly more winter-like high of around 4 degrees. Still, there's not a whole lot of encouragement snow-wise on the weekly forecast as it stands right now.

Planned opening dates for the different resort areas on the mountain:

Niseko Grand Hirafu - looking to 29th November for opening
Niseko Annupuri Kokusai - will open as soon as possible
Niseko Village - Monday 1st December
Niseko Hanazono - Saturday 6th December
