Good morning from Niseko. Things did get colder yesterday and while we didn't really have much new snow to boast about by the time the lifts closed, we do have some new snowfall to report this morning... around 15cm. With the temperatures there should be some nice light powder conditions out on the mountain today. There's less wind as well this morning. It is continuing to snow as I write the report and not much of the mountains can be seen.

It should be colder still tomorrow with temperatures dropping down well below zero in the village and probably minus double figures higher up.

Niseko Grand Hirafu is showing an increase of 5-10cm of snow this morning in it's official snow depth numbers and there was about 15cm of snow waiting outside my place in Hirafu this morning.

This morning Niseko Grand Hirafu has opened up the Super Course - apparently, this is the first time that they have ever been able to do that in November.

Annupuri now saying that they have 9 of their 13 courses open, still being serviced by the same lifts, and as I mentioned yesterday the King Number 3 Triple Lift and Ace Family Pair lift at Hirafu will be operating from tomorrow as well. Tomorrow also sees Niseko Village open up but I can't confirm exactly what they plan to have open just yet.

Today is the last day of the special lower early season ticket prices.

The forecast is looking good for continued cold conditions and regular snowfall.
