Nature decided to give us a present overnight and this morning we are treated to 5-10cm of fresh snow down here at base. Not mad cold and still just above the zero mark earlier on and about +3 degrees right now, but it is of course fantastic to see that new cover of white this morning. Those bare spots I mentioned yesterday are now nicely filled in again, but of course we could always do with more.

It's still looking quite weak though in terms of snowfall expected and we're probably not going to get a whole lot more through into next week - with more rain than snow lined up. I'd be happy if the forecast was wrong and/or changed in that respect.

The planned resort opening dates remain as follows, with the first lifts planning to be operating the day after tomorrow.

Niseko Grand Hirafu - 23rd November
Hanazono - 23rd November
Niseko Annupuri - 23rd November
Niseko Village - 1st December

I will post another update tomorrow.
