Good morning.

We enjoyed some blue skies during the day yesterday, along with those less welcome warmer conditions.

Happily it is colder this morning - currently +2C - and we are hopeful for some more snow to set in starting today through Saturday along with a further drop in temperature. Back down into minus numbers.

There is lots of cloud around this morning with a very grey feel going on, and some extremely light snow ('light' as in the rate it is falling, rather than fluffiness) trying to fall as of 8:00am. Which is better than the very light rain when I first went outside this morning. By tonight hopefully it will be snowing properly, maybe allowing me to be able to report fresh cm in my report tomorrow morning.

The lifts that are operating and the courses that are open at Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri remain the same, even though there is less snow each day.

A fresh delivery please!
