Did I mention the chance of rain yesterday? Well, sadly, we did get some rain fall overnight, but I am happy to report that it has turned into snow and so just a dusting to report this morning. Currently the temperature is hovering around 1C.

Rewind back to yesterday though and some fantastic conditions to report. Some good powder to be found out there and the weather was co-operating too with clear skies and the sun out for a large part of the day. Fabulous. It almost sounds like a cliche already, but it really is hard to believe that we are still in November. We'll just have to see how the rest of the season stacks up, but it is most certainly a good start.

Like we did last year, we'll be giving you some official snowfall numbers for Kutchan town, as well as the snowfall we observe ourselves and the resort snow depths just so we can try to compare things. Once we click over into December I'll round up November as we move forward.

So, today. Like I said just a dusting of snow really and a wet kind of snow falling early on. Better than rain for sure and hopefully will soon be of a more desirable quality. There's more of a wind than yesterday out there as well. Things should get colder as the day moves on and it should be snowing into the weekend.

From Saturday 1st December, Niseko Grand Hirafu plans to have the King Number 3 Triple lift and the Ace Family Pair lift moving in addition to what is already open, so we are gradually seeing more of the mountain open up.

And of course Saturday also sees the opening of the Niseko Village part of the mountain.
