Snowfall in Hirafu Village, 2 December 2013

Moderate snowfall in the village this morning with no wind.

Yesterday Niseko Village Ski Ground and Niseko Annupuri Ski Ground opened.

If you are looking for long runs head over to Niseko Annupuri as they are running the Annupuri Gondola which guarantees the long runs…and no ‘downloading in other words, taking the lift back down the mountain past fields of forbidden powder as you are required to do in Grand Hirafu.

Hopefully the snowfall will continue this week and the resort will be able to open up the lower mountain in the next few days.

Useful information from other places

  1. Thanks for a great site. From someone who is visiting early in the season (first week of Jan)… is this a particularly bad start to a season or do the big winter storms start coming in ‘sometime’ in December normally (last year was just fairly early)?
