The skies may not be quite so blue this morning, but the sun is out again and it is going to be another fine, clear and sunny day here in Niseko.

And that's about it really. What more can I say... oh yes, more of the same coming up tomorrow too. And the day after that. And probably the day after that too. Maybe even the day after that as well.

There's a moderate wind higher up, but lifts are the two open resorts seem to be opening as planned.

Perhaps we can get right up to the end of the season with these conditions.
