Good morning and hello!

I hope that everyone out there is doing well.

It is a lovely morning here in Niseko. The sun is out and there are blue skies with a bit of cloud.

I will be back next month with my thoughts on what has happened since my last report in April.

And of course I will be taking a look forward to the upcoming Niseko winter season... and then be here with you every day once it gets going.

Before then though, I would like to bring your attention to a few things:


Ski areas news for the 2020-2021 season

SnowJapan has started a new blog section that will bring you various ski area news from around Japan. It will be updated regularly over the coming weeks and months. And here it is:

>> 2020-2021 Ski area news from around Japan


SnowJapanHistory website

On coming out of my hibernation recently I was very surprised to find out about the new website that the creator of SnowJapan has been busy making this year. SnowJapanHistory.com is a fascinating look back at old ski areas from the past. There's a lot of them and this new website currently introduces over 120 around Japan. And in quite some detail too!

I had a chat with Andrew a few days ago and it's clear that this project is a labour of love. Just like SnowJapan is, really, and the process of putting it all together seems to have given him a renewed energy moving forward.

Great stuff and highly recommended:

Anyway, got a little bit more re-charging to do and then I'll be back in November ready for the winter!

See you then.
