Welcome to a fantastic bluebird morning in Niseko. Not a cloud to be seen and lovely blue skies up there. A sight to behold. Winter in Niseko we don't get too many of these and so it's something you need to take in and enjoy when it comes. It is all looking stunning this morning. Wow!

Anyway, since my last report just a few cm of snowfall in the village. Without the cloud cover it is a particularly cold morning or it certainly feels it anyway. The thermometer says -5. Things are still set to warm up somewhat today and into tomorrow when we might still get that rain but hopefully soon becoming snow. Strong winds are expected as well. Once we switch into snow mode though, it does look positive for a run of days with decent snowfall, so the courses should soon be filled in and ready to track out again!

Niseko Grand Hirafu yesterday opened the Sennoki course and so along with the connection to Niseko Village becoming accessible, they now have 12 courses open and 10000m of rideable terrain.
