Light rain again this morning, I'm afraid. Happily not quite as windy as yesterday, and while the King Number 3 lift at Niseko Grand Hirafu is open it looks like the top King Number 4 is not. Stronger winds up up there apparently.

It is around 8 degrees here as of 9am. Hopefully it will get colder, and there's even a chance that we might actually get to see some snow falling later on and into tomorrow in higher elevations.

It's Golden Week from tomorrow in Japan. Two long weekends this season (Saturday, Sunday and Monday this weekend; Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday the following weekend), though some lucky people may have the whole week off. More people should be around for this last stretch of the season to get in those last official slides of 12/13.

There has been lots of activity around the area in recent days with diggers and other machinery moving snow around - it's that time of the year when lots of people want to actually get rid of the snow to make way for spring activities.

You will actually be able to play golf in Niseko come next Wednesday! They were actually planning on opening the course up tomorrow but that has been delayed to 1st May with 9 holes planning to be open, and all 18 holes from Friday 3rd May. The Niseko Village Golf Course should be open on Saturday 11th May. Fancy both skiing and golf on the same day?!
