UPDATED AT 4PM:

Niseko Annupuri have announced that they will not be opening tomorrow - not quite enough snow yet.

BUT!

Niseko Grand Hirafu will be opening tomorrow. They will be operating the Center Course, serviced by the Ace Number 3 Pair lift and the Ace Number 2 Center Four lift, which will be also used to come down the mountain with the resort saying you can't ski to base yet. Hirafu still reporting 50cm base / 90cm at top and we haven't had a great deal today really. Further update tomorrow morning - hopefully with news of more snow.

ORIGINAL REPORT AT 9:43AM

Good morning from Niseko, and a good morning it is too with a very nice overnight delivery of snow in Niseko.

There was 25cm of snow waiting outside of my door this morning, more in places. Nice and cold, currently around -3C, we are back into winter mode. Light snow is falling at the moment and snowy conditions should continue through the day and hopefully most days in the coming week. How much falls, well we'll just have to report that as it happens.

Here's what the resorts are reporting this morning.

Niseko Grand Hirafu - 50cm at base, 90cm up top (-6C at 9:30am)
Niseko Annupuri - 40cm at base, 50cm up top (-7C as of 9:30am)
Niseko Village - 20cm at base, 35cm up top

I don't have the lowdown on lifts that will be open tomorrow at Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri, but will update this report later today if that information becomes available. If not, in the report tomorrow.

Planned resort opening dates:

Niseko Grand Hirafu - tomorrow!
Niseko Annupuri - tomorrow!
Niseko Village - 1st December
Hanazono - 7th December
