That first lot of snow down to the village in Niseko a few days ago proved to be very exciting for most people around here, as you can imagine.

We may have seen enough snow up there for some people to want to get out and slide down, but of course the lifts at the ski resorts are not actually moving yet (see below for official opening dates). That didn't stop a few people from hiking up the mountain and getting in their first turns of the season... can't be bad!

Things have warmed up somewhat since that cold winter snap and this morning there are some fine blue skies to enjoy - though the snow is still sitting pretty there for now on the slopes. In the village it has pretty much dried up on roads and sidewalks, though in untouched places there is still 5-10cm or so on the ground.

We are due some warmer still conditions tomorrow - double digit temperatures in the village? - and rain is likely. Hopefully that will quickly turn into snowfall on Sunday and Monday. That's what the current forecast is saying anyway!

Below are the official planned resort opening dates again, they remain as follows:

Saturday 26th November:
Hirafu
Annupuri

Thursday 1st December:
Niseko Village

Saturday 10th December:
Hanazono
