Good morning to you all.

I remember in my report yesterday I mentioned snow to return today, but for the moment the sun is out and we have some lovely blue skies over the Niseko region. Mt Yotei is of course looking lovely as well with some clouds hanging on over in that direction in particular.

It's good and cold too this morning.

So there is no new snowfall since yesterday and it goes without saying that the lifts are yet to open, but snow is still due to be falling again later on in the day today.

What's this about 40cm snow depth by lunchtime yesterday over in Sapporo city? It seems a waste... bring it over here! Apparently it is the first time since 1953 that there has been over 40cm in Sapporo in the month of November.

My SnowJapan HQ friends based down in Niigata have been telling me there are lots of new readers coming on board again this season. A hearty welcome to you all and I hope that you will follow me through the Niseko season. Oh yes, and if you don't like what I post on any given day... just take it out on the Niigata guys, OK?! ;)

With popularity seemingly rising every year at a quick pace I often wonder just how popular Niseko will get. And indeed the other popular snowy regions of Japan.
