Niseko Avalanche Report

Niseko base 6am: -10C, 5cm of new snow in 12 hours. Moiwa 800m: -11C, 15cm of fresh and light development of snowdrifts. Annupuri 1150m: -11C, 10cm of fresh with light development of snowdrifts, snowpack 320cm. Hirafu 1000m: -10C, 10cm of fresh, calm weather. Peak 1308m: N2.9m/s, -12.1C. Coastal data: cape Benkei calm, cape Kamui S2m/s, 0.5m waves, 1020hPa.

The isobars are spaced out and the weather is calm. No notable development of snowdrifts has been observed and the general avalanche risk is low. Peak gates will open from the morning. Hard slabs are forming in some areas above 1100m and could slide with ski stimulation. Stay cautious. The snow in the trees has been reset and is in wonderful conditions. Beware of cracks; it is strongly recommended to carry a rope in case you or your partner falls into one. Put a ski or something hard under and perpendicular to the rope when pulling the victim up. Can you make a bowline knot?

Cornice fall is a permanent hazard, and skiing out of bounds involves many other risks. Better not overestimate skills and knowledge; remain humble and prudent towards the mountain. Seek for the ski patrol’s advice before stepping out of the gate. Have a nice day.
