We are back to windy conditions with a bit of rain and mild-warm temperatures in Niseko this morning. There is some hope of the chance of snow falling at higher elevations later on, we shall see. It very well be just too warm though so I wouldn't be holding out for it!

The wind has been affecting lifts early on and as far as I can tell right now the status of lifts moving is as below.

Things should clear up for tomorrow though and we should see generally sunny and clearer conditions through into next week. Look out for things to really warm up for the weekend - about 10C?
