No new to report from Niseko this morning.

It has been a cloudy start to the day and it's nice and calm. Calm both in terms of weather and the number of people venturing out on the lifts.

Thin clouds seem to be moving away leaving us with an increasing amount of blue sky over the region. Looks like it should be a fine day here.

A cold morning so expect icy conditions early especially.

Some lifts are now closed as the number of people on the slopes decreases:

Niseko Annupuri - Jumbo Number 2 pair and Family pair
Niseko Village - Morino Chair
Niseko Grand Hirafu - Ace 1, King 1, King 2, Ace 4

Avalanche Information:

Niseko base 6am: -7C, no new snow, sunny. Annupuri peak: -12.5C. Coastal data: wind SSE3m/s, 0.5m waves, pressure 1010hPa.

After a cold night the snow is hard but should start to soften up by about 10am. Peak gates are expected to open at 9.30am.

Photos of full depth avalanches are posted in front of the gates. Please check, spring avalanches are large scale. They occur regularly in the Niseko area and there have been many near misses. A crack and full depth avalanche can occur simultaneously with no warning, and occur regardless of air temperature. They are difficult to predict, but can be avoided with care. Avalanches are a natural occurrence. If nobody is caught in one, it is not an accident.
Avoid riding valley bottoms. Around 1000m, leeward slopes, deep snowdrifts below ridge lines and steep slopes where cracks have already occurred, are obvious places for spring avalanches. Avoid riding these areas. Accidents happen from overconfidence and cavalier attitude. The leader of the group takes on responsibility for everyone in the group. Have a safe day. Be careful of cracks, trees and loosing control.
