Hello and good morning. I wasn't actually around for most of yesterday but we do seem to have had some rain falling.

It's definitely colder this morning. It was almost chilly earlier on when I was out taking an early morning walk and there was even some fog around. The sun has appeared now though and more blue skies appearing too, it looks to be clearing up nicely and the local forecasts tell us to expect a fine day with it not warming up too much. Pleasant.

Sunny conditions are forecast for tomorrow as well.

Tomorrow is of course the last day of the official ski and snowboard season here in Niseko and at the end of the day the ski lifts will stop for the last time.

It will also be my last Niseko Now report of the 2014-2015 season. I'm happy to have been able to get one posted for every day that the ski lifts have been moving - and even some days when they have not been moving due to mad weather conditions!

Please note that my report tomorrow might be posted later than in the day than usual.
