Well folks, it's another sunny morning here in the Niseko region.

Lovely views of Mt Yotei.

A cold morning with temperatures below zero, and a high of around +5 forecast for later in the village. Slightly warmer forecast tomorrow along with more sunny conditions.

What about the snow, you ask! Looking at the longer forecast, perhaps something to look forward to around Tuesday.

In the meantime, I think this weekend sightseeing and onsen are going to be the activities of choice.

Snow has pretty much gone from the lower slopes now, though it doesn't take long to change that of course.

I meant to mention at the time but last Saturday a special ceremony was held at .Base in Niseko Grand Hirafu for the resorts in Kutchan and prayers were offered for safety on the slopes this season. It's a tradition that is held every year and I guess at all resorts around Japan.

Let's safety.


Planned opening dates for the different resort areas on the mountain:

Niseko Grand Hirafu - will open as soon as there's enough snow (has been hoping for a 29th November opening)
Niseko Annupuri Kokusai - will open as soon as there's enough snow
Niseko Village - Monday 1st December
Niseko Hanazono - Saturday 6th December
