I had to suddenly get myself over to Sapporo mid morning yesterday, so I missed the day here in Niseko.

Anyway I am back early on now and it's cloudy... but the ground is somewhat wet. Looks like some fog around too. Not the most appealing of mornings, that's for sure...

Tomorrow and Sunday will hopefully be clearer, though there may be cloud around and perhaps some rain on Tuesday. Tuesday being the last day of the season of course... would be nice to go out with some sun.

As you can see from the photo below, snow continuing to melt away and in some places things are getting very... narrow.

Still, come Wednesday and there's not ski lifts moving and so it's our last chance.

AS THE SNOW ARRIVES...
Please note that some of our 'Now' reports may appear a little later than usual over the coming few days. As ski resorts start to open up, more information needs to be gathered and so more time is needed. Thank you for your understanding.
