Brrrr, it's very very cold this morning.

And those of you reading this in Tokyo - or hearing about the forecast 'heavy' snowfall down there - might be thinking that we'd be getting masses more up here.... but actually, we've just got 5cm or so from yesterday and no more this morning.

And instead of stormy snow clouds above Niseko right now.... it's clear, sunny and calm. It often happens like that.

So yes the sun is out and it's going to be a fine day. Snow should be back with us tomorrow.

Keep well wrapped up, the cold is going to continue.

Niseko Avalanche Report

Niseko base 6am: -15C, no new snow in last 12 hrs, clear, cold & surface frost. Moiwa 800m: -14C,calm, no snowdrift development. Annupuri 1150m: -15C, calm, no new snow. Hirafu 1000m: -13℃, calm, no new snow. Annupuri peak 1308m: -16.7C, wind N4.3m/s. Cape Benkei: wind S4m/s, Cape Kamui: wind NE5m/s, wave 1.1m, pressure 1021hpa.

A high pressure system has brought us a clear cold night and a surface frost has formed, which will become notable in future snow pack. Drifts formed over the last few days have stabilised and general avalanche risk is low. Peak gates are expected to open this morning. Please listen to the patrols advice before exiting the gates. While it is not enforced, it is recommended everyone wears a beacon and knows how to use it.

The snow is good. Every year as technology improves your riding speed increases. Remember, if you hit a tree – the tree always wins. Take care drinking too much, a fall down the stairs can lead to a serious accident. This information is issued for the safety of all mountain users. Have a nice day.
