    SkiJapan.com’s Niseko-based snow reporter has stated (amongst the information about the weather and snow depths) the Tokyu Lift Company has announced its ski lifts will open today Saturday November 26. Plus lifts will also turn for the first time at nearby Annupuri Ski Area.

    In the last 72 hours the accumulated snowfalls has provided what is required to kick-off what will be about six months of skiing and boarding at Niseko’s interconnected ski areas.

    Tokyu Lift Company opened its Ace 2 Center Quad and Ace #3 Double Chair providing lift access to the upper slopes of Grand Hirafu. An early season low-cost adult day ticket for about $24 is offered until the end of November.
    Annupuri Ski Area opened some lifts (its Gondola and Jumbo 3 Chairlift) today as planned and the Hotel Niseko Alpen has reopened for the 2016/17 winter season

    Lifts are spinning all over the Northern Hemisphere. Winter has begun up there. Enjoy it wherever you are!
