Good morning from Niseko.

If you saw my updates yesterday you will know that first up Niseko Annupuri announced that yesterday would be their last day of the season.

And then in the evening Niseko Grand Hirafu said that they would be closing at the end of the day on Sunday (19th April).

So here I am.

This morning we have more blue skies and we will likely have more tomorrow. Wind might be an issue during the day today but Hirafu plans to have their four lifts operating.

I will post my final report of the season tomorrow, probably later than usual. See you then.
