Good morning from Niseko.

Lovely weather yesterday and it's blue skies from the start again today. Just a few small clouds in places but mostly blue sky and sunshine. Temperatures might be approaching 10C at base today and rising above that tomorrow as things get warmer. A dip in temps is likely around Monday when we might even get some snowfall on the mountain but more sun and warmth is currently forecast from Tuesday onwards.

Lifts should be opening as planned this morning. I think I am going to get a few hours in this morning.

---

We are now into the 'Final Season' period and that means cheaper lift tickets again. That means that you can get a Hirafu 5 hour ticket for 3,000 yen or a one day ticket for 3,400 yen (2,200 yen and 2,500 yen for junior high students and seniors; 1,600 yen and 2,000 yen for elementary school students).

Note that the Hirafu Gondola will only be operating on Saturdays, Sundays and from 27th April through 6th May.

Over at Annupuri, one day lift tickets are 3,400 yen for adults, 3000 yen for junior high students and 2,600 yen for elementary school students. And I believe that includes 1,000 yen for some lunch and an onsen hot spring entry discount ticket.

All areas that plan to be open should be open this morning.
