Good morning from Niseko.
There's not much to report really as we all eagerly await the arrival of winter and the first real snowfall. There have been some more dustings since my last report but it has generally remained relatively mild.
Rain and perhaps a sprinkling of snow higher up again today but things looks set to get colder on Sunday and into Monday when we might get to see snow.
The planned opening dates are as follows:
Niseko Grand Hirafu - 23rd November Hanazono - 23rd November Niseko Annupuri - 23rd November Niseko Village - 1st December
...depending on the snow, of course. That's just over two weeks away! Exciting. Read more ...

Beautiful autumn colors in Minakami at the moment. Temperatures are falling - it was a little chilly at 7 degrees here today.
A few opening dates are starting to trickle out for the Minakami Resorts
Tenjindaira - not confiremd Houdaigi - December 14 Norn - December 19 Okutone - December 20 Fujiwara - December 20 Minakami Kogen - December 21
There are normally some offers on for lift tickets for the opening week, so worth keeping an eye on the conditions... the above dates are of course snow dependent so fingers crossed for lots of early snow. Read more ...
