It is another warm morning in Niseko and set to warm up a bit more as the sun is out and we have lovely clear skies once again. There's just slightly more of a wind up on the mountain than yesterday. Other than that, another fine day.

The forecast still has some rain due late in the day tomorrow and perhaps Monday, followed by some really warm days next week which will surely see a speeding up of the snow melt. It is getting on for late April, so we certainly can't complain! The resorts are still reporting over 3m up there.

Grand Hirafu have opened what they are calling 'Spring Park' and plan to have it open until the Golden Week. It's over on the upper part of the Shirakaba course (get to it using the King No3 lift). They plan to change the contents but right now seem to have a table top, box and rail amongst other things, so if that's your thing it might be worth checking out.

Of course, the Grand Hirafu gondola is also operating today and tomorrow for the weekend.
