Good morning from Niseko.

We have moved into the last chunk of the season now with Niseko Village closing up shop at the end of yesterday.

From today we have just three lifts scheduled to be operating at Niseko Grand Hirafu - the Ace center quad, King Number 3 quad and the King Number 4 single lifts. Most courses remain open though. There's also three lifts planning to be operating at Niseko Annupuri now too - the gondola, Jumbo Number 1 quad and Jumbo Number 3 pair lifts. They have 11 courses remaining open.

Oh yes, the weather. Feels colder this morning (Annupuri reporting -9C!?). Lovely clear blue skies all around, but unfortunately wind is stopping the gondola at Annupuri and the top lifts from opening as planned.

Forecast shows some snow due around Thursday/Friday! That would feel like a bonus extra at this stage, but... yes please!
