Good morning.

You may have seen the update that I made to the report yesterday, but in case you didn't... Niseko Annupuri is opening this morning. At 9:00am.

It is (very) limited to just the base Dream Number 1 quad lift and the beginners area by the side of that lift. I won't be going myself - it's probably just not gnarly enough for me - but no doubt there'll be people eager to get their first turns of the season. And good for them I say. I'll have some celebratory toast instead (thereby proving my gnarly-ness beyond any doubt).

No fresh snow to report and early on there's a mix of 'looks' going on. From lots of cloud and a foggy feel, to the sun shining through in places; and clearer skies over the lovely Mt Yotei. We can probably expect the clearer conditions to win out and temperatures to perhaps getting up to somewhere close to 10C in town over the weekend. Warmer than we would like, but let's remember the date. It is always great if the resorts can open on time but it's certainly nothing to be worried about. Hopefully we will be back to some fresh snow falling early week.

I plan to be with you every day now. I'll try not to babble on too much when there's not much to report!
