Good morning from Niseko. Another weekend already!

It's a sunny start to the weekend here after a cold night when temperatures dropped down to around -6 degrees in town. It's not expected to warm up too much during the day today, but we are just hoping that we can avoid winds today that will affect lifts. Unfortunately the top lifts were closed for the day yesterday because of those pesky winds. It seems less windy this morning and the numbers being published by Grand Hirafu are lower so fingers crossed...

Not a lot of change forecast for the coming week..... mostly it is forecast to be sun and/or cloud.

Jumbo Number 2 lift at Niseko Annupuri has closed for the season - apologies for not updating that yesterday.

Have a good Saturday wherever you may be (at this time of year close to 100% of readers are reading from outside of Niseko!)
