Good afternoon from the Niseko area and this morning I have some fresh snowfall to report.

There was 3cm of fresh to add to the total this morning, and while it is nice to see a return to colder conditions after some slightly warmer conditions, as I write this report it's borderline with wet snow falling. Temperatures are hovering around the zero mark and we should see some more cm of snow over the next few days, though nothing major is forecast. Unfortunately, it does look like things are going to warm up again from Friday and through the weekend... hopefully by not too much.

The first lifts are scheduled to start moving from Wednesday next week - just one week away now - and so we could do with more cold and decent snow before then.

Niseko continues to become more popular by the season it seems, and every year there seems to be new stuff to report (other than more places to stay and eat popping up). This season there are a few new lifts and courses opening up on the mountain. I'll go into them in more detail in another Niseko Now report, but you can read about those on the new individual resort pages on SnowJapan - go take a look here:
