Good morning.

For various reasons I wasn't able to execute my cunning plan yesterday and didn't make it out onto the slopes.

No snow to report though - both down here at base and from what I am hearing from higher up. The forecasts still tell us that it might be possible - as might rain - though for now it is just cloudy/overcast.

Quite cold, which is a good sign.

Similar kind of weather is forecast for tomorrow.

Sunday is the last day of the season for the Niseko Hanazono and Niseko Village areas of the mountain. In the past Village has opened again for Golden Week, but there's no mention of that on official sauces this year. Sources, even! (I thought I'd leave that in). :)

There is still lots of snow still around with most runs on the mountain remaining open.
