Good morning.

A decent start! I was able to snatch one hour out there yesterday. Such a great feeling after six month or so of forced rest, and the limited terrain and not-as-good-as-peak-season-snow doesn't seem to dampen spirits at all at the start of the season.

There's more snow to report (18cm) since yesterday but it has eased off now. Actually when I got up a little earlier it was more like sleet coming down and when I just went outside to check it was more like... rain. Not much though for the moment.

It is noticeably milder this morning and even milder conditions are forecast over the coming few days, so we probably can't expect much in terms of snowfall and should brace ourselves for the times of rain as well.

Later in the week should see temps drop once again and the return of snow clouds.

Niseko Annupuri joins the fun this morning so there are two choices here in Niseko. Details below.

Oh yes, while it is not a 'Niseko' resort of course, I thought I would mention that Kiroro resort also plans to be part open from this morning.

AS THE SNOW ARRIVES...
