After the wild and not particularly nice conditions of yesterday, it's all change this morning. Clear blue skies over the resorts and much less of a wind. It's going to be a warm one today as well. Tomorrow we might see more rain in the village but fingers crossed that it might be snow higher up, it's going to be borderline though by the looks of things. Beyond that it seems there's a fair bit of clear skies lined up for Niseko into the weekend.

The conditions yesterday can't have done any good to the snow conditions but today should be a feel-good day out on the runs for those getting out there to enjoy them. All is quiet as well so now is a good time to enjoy an uncrowded Niseko!

Hanazono had it's last day of the season (or half day with the lifts closed in the morning due to weather conditions) yesterday and from today that area is now closed for the season. Lifts remaining operating are shown below.
