Good morning from Niseko.

Well, it is a bit nicer than yesterday - at least it's not raining - though there's still foggy conditions on the mountain and there's a lot of cloud around. Hopefully that situation might improve.

But as of 8:30am, all three lifts at Niseko Grand Hirafu are on hold... for some reason there's a delay in opening, but they seem to be saying that they will get going. The top lift at Annupuri is also on hold due to weather conditions.

-----

It's May! The snow numbers for the season are pretty much unchanged, with just 9cm of snow reported in my reports during the month of April. I'll be posting an end of season wrap up on the last day of the season - that'll be on Wednesday 5th.
