Hello everyone.

After my initial 'welcome back' report earlier this month, I've shaken off my hibernation mode, am now fully awake and getting increasingly excited about the winter.

I'm stocked up on toast related equipment and ready to go!

We have seen a few snowflakes here and there (mostly there, there being higher up), but nothing of significance so far. As you can see on the images below, this afternoon it is a rather dull and grey kind of day.

It looks like temperatures will be getting lower by the middle of next week along with the chance of snow around. It is looking quite promising. Fingers crossed.

We still have just over two weeks before the ski lifts start to move, planned dates below. Would be great if we could get off to a great start from Day 1.

(Obviously!)

I went over to the HANAZONO area the other day to see the new gondola being tested out. I'll have more on that for you in a future post.

See you again next week.

Planned opening dates:

Niseko Village: Friday 3rd December 2021
Niseko Annupuri: Saturday 4th December 2021
Niseko Grand Hirafu: Saturday 4th December 2021
Niseko Hanazono: Saturday 4th December 2021
Niseko Moiwa: Saturday 4th December 2021
