Good morning from Niseko and it's another clear, sunny and quite mild start to the day here and today will once again warm up to double digit temperatures. A moderate wind expected today, but it's too early at the time of writing to bring any news of possible lift disruptions...

There might be some rain/snow overnight tonight though into tomorrow, so would be good if I could report a fresh layer of snow in my next report. (Don't expect anything significant though!)
