It's a lovely morning again here in the Niseko area - blue skies, set to quickly warm up once again.... and hardly any wind as well.

Just taking a look at the forecast; if we didn't know it already, I think we can pretty much wave goodbye to the hope of any more fresh conditions, aside from some early April event. We just have to sit back and enjoy the spring now, anything else would just be an amazing bonus.

Generally sunny/cloudy conditions lined up, though after tomorrow when it's going to warm up considerably, it should get a little colder. Still, temperatures to remain in positive numbers.

Niseko Avalanche Report:

Niseko base 6am: 0C, no snowfall, bluebird. Moiwa peak: no data. Annupuri peak 1308m: NE7.3m/s, -0.9C. Coastal data: cape Benkei SSE3m/s, cape Kamui E4m/s, 0.6m waves, 1012hPa. Annupuri snowpack 370cm. Hirafu 1000m: 0C, courses are frozen.

Bluebird morning in the high-pressure, the mountain is frozen early morning. Temperature will start rising from 9am, up to +5℃ at noon. The streams will swell as the snow melts, beware of collapsing snowbridges. Rescue can be extremely difficult if one falls in. Be careful of snowballs falling off the cornices. Avoid approaching cracks, if you can’t see wrinkles under the cracks, the slope might slide from the ground level. Avalanche hazard from deeper layers is rising in leeward slopes above 900m. These slides occur from ground level and run through the valley in high-speed for an unbelievably long distance and are extremely devastating. Do not ski the bottoms of big valleys such as Osawa and Backbowl. Peak gates will open from the morning. Have a nice spring day.
