Winds! Strong winds messing about with our Sunday morning - Niseko Village have wind speeds of 15-28m/s on their website from earlier on and their lifts have not been moving.

Somewhat less blustery 7-16m/s reported by Niseko Grand Hirafu but still they have changed plans with the lower Ace Family and Ace Number 1 lifts moving and opened the Ace Number 2 Center four lift just after 9:30am - that one is operating at reduced speed. Other lifts closed. Over at Niseko Annupuri, the Jumbo Number 1 lift and the Gondola are operating with the top lift closed.

Light rain continued falling until earlier on but eased off for now and a mostly cloudy - and windy - day forecast. There's a few small areas of blue sky here and there at times, but cloud seems to be set to win the day. More cloud likely tomorrow, and hopefully less of the wind thing.

It's noticeably busier this weekend as expected for this Golden Week weekend. Tomorrow, April 29th, is 'Showa Day' and a national holiday. As Wikipedia says 'it honors the birthday of the Showa Emperor (Hirohito), the reigning Emperor from 1926 to 1989. The purpose of the holiday is to encourage public reflection on the turbulent 63 years of Hirohito's reign.
