Good morning and a quick report to follow on from my report last week.

It has been getting colder over the last few days with the first snow to be seen up on the ski hills.

And... yesterday we got our first snowfall down to the village area. Enough for me to get my observed snowfall going and get officially excited.

Hurray!

The sun is out this morning and it looks like it should get a little warmer over the next few days.

Just over three weeks to go...

Here are the official planned opening dates of the ski resorts:

- Niseko Grand Hirafu: Friday 23rd November 2018
- Niseko Annupuri: Friday 23rd November 2018
- Niseko Village: Saturday 1st December 2018
- Niseko Hanazono: Saturday 1st December 2018

Once again I plan to be here with you every single day of the 2018-2019 ski season once it kicks off. And I will try to be here from time to time with some updates before then.

In the meantime, if you want to read the 'end of season' report page from last season, here it is.

PS: Update on that giant bug from my report last week: happily, it did not destroy the Hirafu Gondola, which is all there and ready to go. Phew.

PS2: The snowfall I logged in the report today should really have been recorded as being for yesterday, 31st October. I was out of Niseko yesterday and so could not post a report. I'll be more strict with myself once the daily routine gets going, I promise.
