Hello and good morning from Niseko.

For a change, I don't have any new cm of snow to report. Doh! Just a sprinkling really since my report in the morning yesterday.

Right now there's still a lot of cloud around the mountains, but I can see some blue sky too - lots looking over towards Mt Yotei - and the sun is shining through in places as well. It's due to be rather mild during the daytime today. Up to as high as around 6C in town?

But with all the recent snowfall and the sun shining down on us, everywhere is looking lovely. And you can ski and board back to base at both Niseko Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri with a decent choice of slopes available.

Today will probably end up being a short break from the winter conditions with temperatures once again due to drop starting from later tomorrow with more snowfall on the horizon.

That all sounds good to me.
