Just a few cm of new snowfall to report this morning and feeling milder than the same time yesterday. At the moment it is borderline 0 degrees and light snow is falling, wet variety. Hopefully we will avoid it getting too... wet.

It's due to be falling on and off today, and snow tomorrow too - hopefully a bit colder as well.

Moderate wind this morning and stronger higher up with top lifts again not moving this morning and a few others running at reduced speed. The Gondola at Hirafu was delayed a bit but doing it's thing now.

Avalanche Information:

Niseko base 6am: -4C, trace of new snow. Moiwa 800m: wind NE10m/s, 5cm new snow, snowdrift development, -7C. Annupuri peak: -9.3C. Coastal data: wind W17m/s, 2.1m waves, pressure 1011hPa. Wind at 1500m is expected to be WSW20m/s at noon. Annupuri snow depth: 400cm at 1000m.

Peak gates will be closed today due to the strong winds above 1000m. Because of the ability for many people to enter the Niseko backcountry by ski lift, the decision whether or not to open gates is made conservatively through objective hazard evaluation to minimize danger for all users.

According to data and observation the general avalanche risk is lower than yesterday. However above 900m, from the 9th Mar pre-low pressure layer, there is danger of avalanche on leeward slopes and knolls. Take care not to trigger cornices and knolls.

The snow in the trees is not bad today but visibility not good. Be careful of cracks and holes. Gates other than 2 and 3 may open if conditions allow. Please respect ski patrols decision. Ducking ropes is a serious offence.
