Morning from the Niseko area on this second day of the season.

I went up there yesterday on the Center Course at Niseko Grand Hirafu, thought I needed to get in my first ski of the season. For research purposes of course! It was fun. Obviously there is not that much snow around yet with lots of things popping up from the ground but generally the snow cover was decent enough.

There has been a slight dusting of snow since yesterday, probably just a few mm worth. There is quite a lot of cloud around at the moment, more than there was when I got up earlier on. Forecast for the day is cloud with a high of about 3 degrees, with a chance of some sun as well into the mix. Sadly the mix does not include any snowfall.

The planned limited resort operations today look to be unchanged since yesterday.

Tomorrow will be warming up somewhat - double figure temps in Kutchan perhaps? - but temperatures are then due to take a drop later in the day. Rain is likely before turning into snowfall.

Snow over the weekend? That sounds good, we'll take that please.
