I’m sorry if I disappointed you yesterday. I was disappointed, too as the top lift wasn’t open when I was there in the morning. I’ve heard that it opened in the afternoon, so I hope everyone except me enjoyed the beautiful afternoon.

Okay, I won’t talk about the gates today as I don’t want to disappoint you again. But I’m sure snow is incredibly light and deep. I had to clear 30 cm of new snow last night, snow was super light, lightest snow of 2017. I think Niseko side has got more snow than Hirafu side this time, I might go Annupuri and Moiwa , be a good girl and wait there till the gates open.

Snow has stopped falling and the temperature will go up today. Have a great weekend!
