It's a lovely spring morning in Niseko. The sun is out, blue skies and no clouds to be seen. A warm start as well, and today and we might see the mercury rise to over 10C and pushed a little higher even tomorrow, which should also be clear and sunny. So all is calm in Niseko - including the slopes, though we can expect to see some more people turn up tomorrow for some weekend sliding.

Sunday we might see stronger winds and rain later on in the day as well as a slight dip in temperature before things warm up again for early next week.

The Hirafu Gondola will once again be called into action for the weekend.
