Cloudy and windy this morning.

I have to post this report early before there's full information available, but I would expect top lifts to be affected. Niseko Grand Hirafu already actually seem to be saying that the two King lifts will be on hold due to the wind but they plan to get the Ace Number 3 lift moving as a 'replacement'. No word yet from Annupuri.

So yes it's generally cloudy with a spot of rain possible this afternoon.

Hopefully we'll get back to clearer skies and sun for the weekend - and less wind - and the forecasts seem to be giving a good chance of that happening.

Look for a real warm up starting around Monday, when temperatures may start approaching 20 degrees at base.
