Good afternoon from Niseko.

'Afternoon' (!?) I hear you say. Sorry about that, I had to be in Sapporo first thing. I am of course going to keep on posting reports every day until the last lift stops, though please do note that - like today - sometimes they will be at different times of the day.

Anyway, it is a fine day here. Blue skies and the sun is out and currently about 8C. As the forecasts stand, it looks like we will have more of the same tomorrow as well.

Wind is actually affecting the gondola and top lift at Annupuri unfortunately but Grand Hirafu has been open as planned. Hopefully less wind tomorrow.

Friday and Saturday there's some rain on the forecast. Might it actually snow a bit higher up on the mountain?
