Morning and here we are on the official opening day of the season in Niseko with Niseko Grand Hirafu opening at 8:30am this morning.

Around 15cm of fresh snowfall since my last report here in the village.

As I mentioned yesterday afternoon, Niseko Grand Hirafu has the Ace Number 3 pair lift servicing the Center Course, and the Ace Number 2 Center Four lift taking people up (and down) from that upper area. Hirafu are reporting 60-100cm on it's slopes this morning and a temperature of -6 degrees.

Here in the Hirafu village area it's around -1C and currently just cloudy with light snow falling at times - was hoping for more sustained snowfall (aren't we always?!). Hopefully we will get more later on, but the forecast into next week not looking quite as encouraging as it was a few days back.

Anyway, Niseko Village plans to open tomorrow with the Community Chair and Banzai Chair lifts operating and 4 courses open. No further word yet from Annupuri.
