Plenty of blue sky and sunshine across Grand Hirafu this morning . That mercury is on the rise with + temps to around the 900mtre level - Gusty SSW jetstream today 25-45k at top so we'll see how that direction and velocity effects those upper connecting lifts and gate access.
Perhaps a few more crystals to drop later Tuesday into Wednesday with the base pack holding up well at this satge of season. Around 300cm under foot at mid to top and 100cm at bottom. Nice...
Hirafu still has 6 weeks of lift operations left for turns. May 6th is the last lifts date and bound to have plenty of great spring corn skiing and riding on offer along with lunchtime feasts to enjoy...Here's King Bel on a cracker late April / early May day with BBQ's and Beers on the snow deck ...Awesome...Stay safe and have a good one..

Always keep out of roped and closed areas and adhere to the Niseko Rules. Read the avalanche report - Don't break boundaries or go into strictly forbidden terrain. This information will help keep you safer up there - Red button below along with our quick links to lifts status and The Niseko Rules.
Equip yourself adequately with the tools and safety gear if heading out the gates or touring plans. Strong caution advised whenever stepping outside legal gate access or skinning / touring back country. Be smart - Living is good.
