Just a few more cm of fresh snow to report this morning.

After the clear start to the weekend yesterday, we're back to more cloudy conditions this morning. Light snow earlier but no snow falling right now as I write this. There's just a light wind and a temperature of about -6 degrees. So just a cloudy day today perhaps?

The forecast continues to tell us to expect sun and clearer skies again tomorrow and the first part of the week. It is also going to be milder and temperatures at base may venture into positive territory.

Niseko Avalanche Report

Niseko base 6am: -8C, 2cm of snowfall since dawn. Moiwa 800m: W6m/s, -9C, 5cm of fresh. Annupuri 1150m: WNW7m/s, 5cm of new snow. Hirafu 1000m: -8C, light dusts. Peak 1308m: NW10.4m/s, -12.2℃, 12 o’clock forecast NW10m/s. Coastal data: Benkei cape NNW10m/s, Kamui cape SSW3m/s, 0.7m waves, 1027hPa.

Calm morning in spaced out isobars wintry pressure pattern. The overall avalanche risk is low. Peak gates will open from the morning. Please refer to the ski patrol’s advice before stepping out of the gates. The mountain is tracked out, but the snow remains good except in south facing slopes. Beware of over-speeding, hitting trees and falling into cracks. Many hazards other than avalanches are present in the mountain. This information is made to secure the minimum safety of people skiing in Niseko. Thoughtless actions can lead to serious consequences. Never overestimate yourself and be prudent. Precaution is key to avoid accidents.
