Basking in the Hirafu Sunshine

It sure has been a strange old start to the season with a delayed start to lift operations on 1st December. In the first 8 days of the month we received 75cm at Village level and life was good – just check out this POV video shot on the 7th of December.

Since the 8th we have ad no snow and either strong sunshine or rain and unusually warm conditions. That being said the snow base has held up remarkably well. There has still been plenty of runs open and pleanty of skiing and snowboarding to be had.

The video below was shot yesterday and shows exactly how things are looking in town.
