Hello everyone.

It has been six months since my last post here. A full half year!

Yet here we are once again with a fresh snow season just around the corner. I have taken the chance to re-charge and I am now feeling (almost) ready to get back into the swing of things and posting daily reports. It's always a bit daunting before the beginning of the season, but very exciting too of course. I usually can get into gear pretty quickly, just give me a bit of time...

Expect a few reports over the next few weeks and then daily from 23rd November right through until 6th May next year.

For today I just wanted to say hi and make a note of the official ski resort opening dates:

Niseko Annupuri

Saturday 23rd November 2019 until Wednesday 6th May 2020

Niseko Grand Hirafu

Saturday 23rd November 2019 until Wednesday 6th May 2020

Niseko Village

Sunday 1st December 2019 until Wednesday 6th May 2020

Niseko HANAZONO Resort

Saturday 7th December 2019 until early April 2020

----

Night time operations will be available at the Niseko Grand Hirafu, Niseko Village and Niseko Annupuri resorts. That is planned daily between Wednesday 11th December 2019 and Sunday 22nd March 2020.

----

Lift ticket prices depend on the period - Early, Regular or Spring Season:

Early Season = Saturday 23rd November 2019 until Tuesday 10th December 2019
Regular Season = Wednesday 11th December 2019 until Sunday 22nd March 2020
Spring Season = Monday 23rd March 2020 until Wednesday 6th May 2020

You can find updated lift ticket prices on the ski resort pages within SnowJapan (links above).

----

Anyway, that's it from me for today. It's good to be back.

I will post some reports from time to time over the next few weeks, hopefully with some encouraging snow news in the coming days.... it's getting pretty cold!

Here's to a splendid season. I hope the Niseko Now reports will be part of yours.

Niseko Now ski lift operation notes:

Hopefully the first lifts will be moving from 23rd November. It will depend on the snow.
