It is another lovely morning here in the Niseko area. The sun is out, blue skies, just a slight wind. Yes, it's a lovely spring morning. Anyone still interested in skiing or boarding?!

Temperatures dipped down to around -5 degrees overnight, so it's still getting pretty cold. A high of around 10C is forecast for the day here in town.

Tonight maybe not as cold but more sun again tomorrow with a chance of some rain later.
