Hurray!

It is snowing.

And there's a bit of fresh snow on the ground. While I am not quite seeing 1cm here at base, I am going to be jolly naughty this morning - and totally reckless and rock'n'roll - by 'rounding up' and adding 1cm to the report. I do think it is justified as there have been other days when there has been a dusting not recorded and also so that in the big picture (and looking back) we will be able to see that there has been a bit of snowfall on this date.

And perhaps there is even a little more up there on the mountain. I am going to go and check that out myself.

Looks like the colder conditions should continue for a few more days. Generally cloudy weather is forecast today but as of 8:10am it is still snowing. Yey!

Maybe we will enjoy some sunshine tomorrow. Or maybe not.

Tomorrow (Sunday) is the last day of the season for the Niseko Hanazono and Niseko Village areas of the mountain.

There is just over four weeks left to go now. That means I have about 30 more 'Niseko Now' reports to post before I can hibernate for about 6 months. I'll keep them coming every day. Do forgive me if sometimes they are a little shorter or appear at less regular times. There's generally less to report now of course, but I will do my best to bring you info and keep them interesting. And perhaps I will respond to the unprecedented demand for all the latest toast tips and news from Niseko which I am sure you agree sounds rather excite. ;)
