Good morning from Niseko. It is another warm and cloudless morning here and today we should have a high temperature of around 20 degrees in the village. There's just a slight wind and the lifts seem to be moving as planned this morning.

Someone has asked us about Niseko Village as apparently there don't seem to be any lift status updates on their website - yes, they are open with the Gondola and Wonderland lift moving. As with the other two resort areas that are still part open, they intend to be open until the end of Sunday so just another few days.

As I have mentioned previously, from tomorrow we enter the second part of Golden Week for the last four days of the season in Niseko. It has felt very quiet the last few days actually, but no doubt more people will be here for that last chance slide of the season.
