There's quite a lot of cloud around this morning and Mt Yotei is looking splendid with that fetching 'cloud-hat' look going on.

So here we are on 17th November, just four days before Niseko Grand Hirafu was hoping to open for the season.

I would of course this morning love to be sitting here with the heater on full-blast, writing about lots of fluffy snow falling outside with the resort opening happening just as planned... but unfortunately that is looking extremely unlikely.

Instead, we are snow-less at the moment and basically it's just too warm so we are waiting for temperatures to drop further to where they should be and for snow to start falling again.

It does look like it should be getting colder towards the end of the week with a chance of snowfall as well. Anyway, I will post another report later in the week with a further update.

You can keep an eye on the weekly forecast here.

Planned opening dates for the Niseko resorts:

Niseko Grand Hirafu: Saturday 21st November
Niseko Annupuri: Saturday 28th November
Niseko Village: Tuesday 1st December
Niseko HANAZONO: Saturday 5th December

'Nighta' should be starting on Saturday 12th December
