Opening day! What a way to open the season for 07-08! 30cm of fresh light snow on the ground at the base of the mountain. The big low of the past few days has drifted north and the skies are clearing for a perfect morning. Temperatures are comfortable and wind is light. No major systems are sitting off Hokkaido now so the next few days should be very good to get out and enjoy the mountain.


1pm update... it stopped snowing early this morning and lifts opened at 8.30am. Ace 3 lift only operating for skiing today accessible by the Ace#2 Center 4 Quad chair. Excellent snow conditions, however it's forbidden to ski down below top of Centre 4 lift and downloading only is possible from this point. This has not prevented a small number of audacious skiers and boarders from ducking the ropes and skiing down the Supercourse and Gondola runs as the tracks testify. Need to remember it is still early days and we are restricted to the Ace Pair Lift #3 for the next few days until more snow falls.

Those who decide to ski down at this time are risking their season by the possibility of hitting submersible objects in the shallow snowpack. Given that, its still a fantastic start to the season with the potential for more of the mountain to open up early next week.

This morning there was a ceremony of traditional drumming (Taiko)and our famous mascot Jagatakun even made an appearance at Seicomart to celebrate the new season.

Last night Grand Hirafu held their annual season opening party at the Alpen hotel which was well attended by locals. There is an exciting air of anticipation in the village as season 2007/8 shapes up to be one of the biggest ever.
