3PM UPDATE

With a bit of blue sky above me as I write, I have some opening news for the Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri resort areas.

Niseko Grand Hirafu will be opening for the season tomorrow morning. They plan to have the Ace Number 3 lift operating, from 8:30am until 3:10pm. The Ace Number 2 Center Four lift will also be operating to take excited people up to the open area... that open area being the Center Course. Special lift ticket prices of 2,000 yen for adults and 1,000 yen for children and seniors applies from tomorrow until 30th November.

Niseko Annupuri will also be opening from tomorrow. They plan to have the Jumbo Number 3 lift and the Gondola operating, the latter also just operating to get people up to the open area... that open area being the Utopia Course. The first gondola will start at 8:30am. Charges are 2,100 yen for adults and seniors and 1,300 yen for elementary school age children.

Yey!

ORIGINAL MORNING REPORT (all report data remains as per the original report time)

It is a very good morning to you from here in Niseko.

Oh yes, there is a very nice amount of fresh snowfall to report to you in this report. 25cm of it according to my hi-tech measuring stick. These are the kind of numbers that I like, as I am sure you do too. (Actually, coming to think of it I prefer 50cm... but 25cm will certainly do!)

The cold conditions are continuing and it is still snowing lightly now as I write this, but it's expected to ease off late on and be slightly warmer with less chance of snow tomorrow.

We will have to see if there is enough snow for the ski lifts at Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri to start moving from tomorrow - as of yet, there is no news from either resort. No doubt there are meetings going on now discussing that very thing...

The folk at SnowJapan tell me that the access numbers are rapidly increasing day-by-day, and so if this is your first time here this season - hi, and welcome back if you have used Niseko Now before now. You'll notice a fresh new look and lots of new season comparison data.

May I bring to your attention those big blue buttons at the top of this report that say 'Snowfall Analysis' and '6-Day Forecast' - and also all of the archive reports too which are linked to at the bottom of the pages.

Let's comparing!
