It feels colder this morning here at base but it will probably warm somewhat and end up another mild day.

Overcast and a bit of a wind this morning and it seems that at the start of the day the top lifts at all 4 areas on the mountain are on hold. In addition to the wind, rain is expected later on this afternoom. (Possibly some snow higher up?)

Do check out the scary giant bug on the webcam image below. Kowai!

Niseko Avalanche Report

Any problems can eventually be solved if tackled honestly and seriously. This is how the Niseko Rules started in order to reduce out of bounds accidents in Niseko. The Rules achieved some positive results, however can easily become a dead letter if the intention is lost. It seems things are heading this direction nowadays, with the community prioritizing and in favor for tourism promotion. We do respect the freedom to ride out of bounds, however the experience of digging out many victims from avalanche debris, made us be always concerned about people’s safety.

The mountain is shifting to Spring; good conditions awaits, but various hazards are also present. Always be alert and precautious in the mountains.
Climax (ground) slides are likely to occur while there’s snow, beware, avalanches are natural occurrences but are an accident only if a person is involved.

Go out and enjoy Spring.

That's a wrap for 14-15 Niseko Avalanche Information.

(And we thank you! Otsukaresama deshita).
