Back to colder conditions once again this morning in Niseko and right now it is around -5C.

Unfortunately, wind is hampering things once again with upper lifts at all of the resort areas closed. Niseko village is reporting winds of up to 22m/s up top.

A small amount of new snow since yesterday, just a few cm. The wind is blowing things around this morning and so the new cm won't be covering up the somewhat icy conditions out there at the moment.

It looks like it is going to remain cold over the next few days - at least no significant warm up on the horizon - and we should see a mix of cloud and snow showers from time to time.

Avalanche Information:

Niseko base 6am: -7C, 2cm new snow. Moiwa 800m: -12C, wind NW15m/s, snow drift and cornice development. Annupuri peak: -15.3C, wind predicted to be WNW15m/s at noon, snow depth: 400cm at 1000m. Coastal data: wind NW17m/s, 2.6m waves, pressure 1004hPa.

Typical winter weather pattern with strong NW wind, rapid snow drift growth from wind blown snow. Potential for knolls and cornices to easily collapse. Leeward slopes above 800m and open steep slopes the avalanche risk is HIGH. Although there has been little new snow, due to high wind, slabs have developed rapidly. There is potential for up to 60cm surface layer avalanche. Assess the dangers before riding a fresh line.

All peak gates will be closed, other gates depend on lift operations. Please respect the patrols decisions. We highly recommend carrying beacon, probe & shovel when leaving resort, however don't overestimate this equipment or your knowledge.
