Good afternoon from Niseko.

This week a fair few people have been seen hiking up the mountains to get a closer look at the snow up there. Or indeed just to get a feel of the mountain again. I was up there myself a few days ago, on the 5th - it was a rare day at this time of year when the skies are clearer and we were treated to some magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. The snow caps on Youtei and Annupuri were looking almost...cute, as my colleague commented! It was great to be able to get out walking on the snow again, though there really wasn't a huge amount - just patches really. The resorts have been busy of late making final preparations for the snow and the hills are now looking ready, stripped of their summer growth and just waiting to get that beautiful snow to fall.

Today started off with a lot of cloud around and there's still a lot covering the top half of Youtei but some blue skies now over the ski resorts. Temperatures have been hovering under double figures during the daytime at base. It looks like we might get to see some more sun over the weekend, but it should stay nice and cold. Rain is forecast early into next week but things are looking promising for snowfall - at least higher up on the mountains - around Tuesday and Wednesday.

With the resorts hoping to open in a few weeks, all eyes will be on the forecasts and what Mother Nature brings us as we get closer. Talking of which, below are the dates that the ski resort areas are hoping to be able to open on:

23rd November
Niseko Grand Hirafu
Niseko Annupuri

1st December
Niseko Village

8th December
Hanazono

Let's hope they can.

We'll bring you more news next week. Have a good weekend.
