It looks like a real winter morning outside. I went to Grand Hirafu yesterday. Upper area was recovered by fresh snow and I had a good couple of runs.

More courses and lifts open today!! Niseko Village and Hanazono start their new season today. I am going to Hanazono to celebrate their opening! Only upper area is opened still, please take Gondola or Center 4 back to the bottom to avoid scratches;) NV opens lower courses, so that would be good for beginners.

Snow keeps falling all day today and tomorrow looks like a happy sunny Sunday.
