Good morning.

Another 16cm of snow since my measurement yesterday morning as the snow keeps on steadily coming in.

Some very fine conditions to be enjoyed - and lots of people around to enjoy them. All should be open as normal this morning.

I don't seem to have many words in my bag this morning, so I think I'll just get myself out onto the mountain.

Niseko Avalanche Report:

Mountain Base 6.00am: -10°, 13cm snowfall in the last 24hrs, calm. Moiwa 800m: -12.2°, W7.8m/s, minor cornice and snowdrift development, 10cm snowfall in last 12hrs. Mikaeri Weather Station: minor snowdrift development. Annupuri 1120m: snow depth 240cm, 1150m: -12°, W15m/s, snowfall 10-20cm. Hirafu Peak: -12°, W15/ms, snowfall 20cm. Mizuno no Sawa: -13.47°, NW8.4m/s, 13cm snowfall in last 24hrs, mountain base: snow depth 174cm. Kutchan Weather Station:- 8.3°, S2.3m/s, snow depth 194cm. Suttsu Weather Station:- 5.3°, NW4.3m/s, snow depth 58cm.Cape Benkei: N10m/s, Cape Kamui: WNW8m/s, pressure 1025hPa, wave 1.7m.

There is inconsistency in the upper 15-20cm of snow pack, however the general avalanche risk is low. All peak gates are expected to be open. Please listen to the patrols advice before going through the gates. Proceed 1 by 1 on steep slopes. Do not wait in the valley bottoms, these are the avalanche paths.

Most avalanches are caused by peoples actions, but they also occur naturally often by cornice collapse. Dont jump up and down on the top of cornices, it might break off a lot further back than you expected. Cracks are starting to appear and are difficult to see from above. Be careful falling into them.

The mountains are reset and conditions are good. Beacons and helmets are recommended but not compulsory. The skier/boarder downhill in front has right of way, be aware of your blind spots. Beware of a sudden change in weather. This information is issued to prevent accidents outside the ski areas. Have a good day.
