Not a whole lot to report today as we continue waiting. (And planning our own Olympic courses down Mt Annupuri, of course! If you don't know what I'm talking about there, please see yesterdays Niseko Now report.)

Temperatures up to around +6 degrees today in town and there was a nice bit of sun shining on the upper part of Mt Yotei just before.

Inevitably of course Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri resorts announced that further delay to opening due to lack of snow and promise to do so as soon as there is enough snow.

A sunny start tomorrow maybe with rain later on, followed by snow on Tuesday when it should suddenly get real cold as well. Lots please!

A few people have asked some questions about the Niseko Now reports and I thought I would answer them. With stuff like the 'Olympic news' yesterday, it basically seemed like an interesting thing to mention. So stuff like that might get mentioned. But we're don't do any kind of business promotions, and you won't see any marketing or advertising-like content on the Niseko Now reports (or any of the other Now reports on SnowJapan). In fact, no-one has any influence whatsoover over what is in our reports - and we'll say when conditions are bad, it's mad windy, it's raining and all that kind of stuff. Sadly, it's not always perfect so we might have to do that from time to time.

It's bottom-line important to SnowJapan that what we post is correct, true, honest and hype-free. Of course, I am human and so there's a capacity for mistakes, as well as being perhaps a bit over-excited when things are going heavenly (!), but myself and my sometimes colleague will do our very best to keep things on track. A lot of people read these reports every day, so we do take them very seriously. Gambarimasu.

And of course if you ever do find anything in the reports that you feel the need to comment on, feel free to contact SnowJapan at the main contact address and they will almost instantly be talking with me. :)
