It's another mostly clear and sunny morning here in Niseko. Calm, sunny, blue skies. Unfortunately as expected of course no fresh snow to play in this morning. Temperatures due to rise to low positive numbers today.

More sun probable tomorrow too - and even warmer conditions forecast. How about a high of +6C forecast for Kutchan town tomorrow... nooooo!

Enough sun already? Yes, me too. Maybe some fresh snow on overnight Thursday into Friday? Or maybe over the weekend or early next week. Hmmm. At least there's no rain forecast for the moment! It's unclear, but after the warm up which will hopefully (surely.. please..) peak tomorrow, then we are due to get back to colder temperatures.

Well anyway, we get slightly grumpy when the fresh snow isn't on tap as we expect and perhaps we shouldn't. There's still lots of fun to have. It's just not as fun as deep fresh powder. Obviously! Until tomorrow - put that sunscreen on today though.

Niseko Avalanche Report

Niseko base 6am: -7C, no snowfall, bluebird. Moiwa 800m: -7C, calm, bluebird and no snowfall. Annupuri 1150m: n/a. Hirafu 1000m: -7C, no snowfall. Peak 1308m: N11.6m/s, -10.3C. Coastal data: Benkei cape NNE2m/s, Kamui cape S2m/s, 0.5m waves, 1028hPa.

A moving High is covering the area, resulting in a bluebird morning. The avalanche risk is low above 800m. Peak gates will open from the morning. The Mizuno no Sawa program has ended yesterday, however avalanche control will continue for another while. Do not duck ropes to enter the area. Also remember to keep off from Yu no Sawa and Haru no Taki strictly off-limits areas. Full-depth avalanche hazard is rising in south facing steep slopes below 800m. The mountain is tracked out but it’s good to be out in the sun. The snow gets good in south facing bowls in the afternoon and in the trees. The groomers are hard in the morning. Beware of overspeeding, falling and hitting obstacles. Have a nice day.
