Good morning from Niseko.

I have some fresh snow to report this morning. Just a bit, but enough to whiten over some of the more 'used-looking' snow close to base. Lots of cloud around at the moment but we may get some sunshine later on in the day.

Mostly cloudy conditions yesterday and this morning there is still a lot of cloud around the mountain but some blue sky and the sun shining through too off to the east. We might enjoy some periods of sunshine over the next few days.

Can I just mention that I did actually go back to update that report that I made on 3rd when I was over in Hakodate (nice place). Niseko Grand Hirafu was reporting an impressive 20cm of fresh snow on the upper slopes that morning and I must admit to being a bit miffed that I missed that and couldn't get to enjoy it.

It will be interesting to see how much there might be on higher slopes this morning...

I need to post an early report this morning and so there is not yet any specific ski lift related information that I can share. We are expecting some westerly winds today.

Last two days of the season for Hanazono and Village!
