Good morning from Niseko.

It's a lovely morning.

Mostly blue skies and sunshine with just a bit of thin high cloud in places.

It is going to warm up as well today with a high of around 15C forecast later on.

And a good chance of similar conditions tomorrow too.

Nice.

I just have to laugh/sigh sometimes...

Someone sent an abrupt and somewhat rude email in to SnowJapan 'complaining' about how my reports are now sometimes 'too early'. In contrast to them being 'too late' as they apparently are during the main season when I usually post regularly around 8:30am.

Dear oh dear.

I'm not even going to bother trying to explain. Tell you what, we'll just do what we do to the best of our abilities. If you don't like it, just don't read it.

Simples!

:)

Who are these people?! May I suggest finding some more positive things to do with your time.

As always, a thank you to the people who do take a few minutes to send us considered comments and words of encouragement. They are always welcome and appreciated.
