It's going to be another warm day here in Niseko; expecting highs of about 20C today.

Hirafu Gondola is due to be moving again today of course as we enter Golden Week.

The Niseko Village resort area should also be open again today for the Golden Week holiday period; non-skiers/boarders can also get on the gondola for the scenery (1200 yen return). It's not clear exactly what lifts they will have open and for some reason they are being shy with that information (even on their own website)... I'll aim to update that in my report tomorrow.
