Yesterday was one of the days Niseko lived up to the moniker The Powder Factory, it just didnt stop all day, the icy pellet like snow that was falling as yesterdays report went out soon gave way to fantastically light powder that just kept coming and coming.

Currently temperatures hovering at -3 at the base with up top temperatures feeling around -11 with the wind chill factor, dropping much further with stronger gusts coming in this afternoon so take precautions against frostbite up there.

Hirafu busy again this morning with lots of punters lining up to get on the gondola, lift operations much the same as yesterday, still not everything running but it can't be long now until the top lifts open and everything is nicely linked

Current lift operations at time of writing (subject to change depending on conditions)

Hirafu family pair, Ace Quad, Ace Pair 3 and Hooded pair 3 (operation slowed), swinging monkey and holiday pair running. Gondola also running

Gondola, jumbo quad and Pair 2 and Annupuri Pair 3 running.

Niseko Village:
Banzai, Mori no and Community chair and Gondola running

Hanazono lift 1,2 and 3 running
