Good morning and another quick pre-season report.

And this morning I can actually record the first cm of snowfall here at base... and not just 1cm, but a whopping 2cm! While it is important not to get over-excited - difficult at times, admittedly! - it is good to be able to get the numbers starting before we even get into November. And there's every chance that we get see some more as well by the looks of the forecast, particularly at higher levels.

There is a lot of cloud around at the moment but things might clear up later in the day. Nice and chilly though with temperatures not going to rise much about 2C today.

We are about one month away from the planned opening dates of the Niseko resorts. Below are the planned dates for the season.

Niseko Grand Hirafu: Wednesday 23rd November 2016 until Sunday 7th May 2017
Niseko Annupuri: Saturday 26th November 2016 until Sunday 7th May 2017
Niseko Hanazono: Saturday 3rd December 2016 until Sunday 2nd April 2017
Niseko Village: Thursday 1st December 2016 until Sunday 2nd April 2017

Night skiing is planned from Saturday 10th December until Monday 20th March 2017 at the Annupuri, Grand Hirafu and Village resort areas.

In a matter of days, you are going to see some big changes to these Niseko Now reports. And I think you are going to like what the SnowJapan guys have been up to. I won’t go into details now as I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but they are doing final preparations now and all being well I believe the changes should go online in early November. The ski resort listing pages of SnowJapan have also had a complete overhaul, and they also look really good. Otanoshimini!

I will be back here with some Niseko Now reports before the season starts, and then I will be posting reports every day of the season once the lifts start moving.

Remember, you can always look back at past reports using the archives, links below.
