Good morning from the Niseko area.

Another 11cm of quality fresh snowfall to add to my reports this morning.

And it's another very, very cold morning with regular snowfall is still expected over the coming week.

Things are good. :)

And that's all for today. I will see you tomorrow.

Niseko Avalanche Report:

Mountain Base 6.00am: -12°, 5cm new snow in the last 12hrs, calm. Moiwa 800m: -13.7°, W6.4m/s, minor cornice and snowdrift development, good visibility. Mikaeri Weather Station: snowdrift development. Annupuri 1120m: snow depth 230cm, 1150m: -16°. Mizuno no Sawa: -15.85°, NNW6m/s, 11cm new snow in last 24hrs. Hirafu Peak: -18°, NNW10/ms, good visibility. Kutchan Weather Station:- 14.3°, ENE0.8m/s, snow depth 182cm. Cape Benkei: N9m/s, Cape Kamui: N3m/s, pressure 1021hPa, wave 0.8m.

Currently light winds of about 10m/s with no significant snow drift development, even above 800m. Snow fall is less than 20cm in the last 24hrs and from observation the avalanche risk is low. Cornice development from dawn is easily fracturing, be careful on cornice slopes. The snow above 800m is mostly reset and all gates are expected to be open. Please listen to the patrols advice and be prepared before going out the gates. Outside the gates is not the ski resort, following other's tracks can lead you astray, always know your current position.

There was an accident on the north slope of Higashi One yesterday, ski patrol and the Kutchan Fire Department were involved in the rescue. Hirafu Patrol would like to convey their appreciation to the Fire Department for their assistance. Avalanches are not the only danger in the winter mountains, many other hazards exist outside the ski resorts. Always take cautious actions. Snow is really good now, be careful of a sudden weather change
