Good morning from Niseko.

Well, maybe not the best of mornings as I can't report any snow... other than another light dusting not amounting to 1cm.

So we had very light snow on and off yesterday, but it really didn't amount to much of anything.

This morning it doesn't look like it's going to pretend to try to snow much. While intermittent snow showers are there on the forecast, it seems more likely to turn into a fine and sunny day.

It's not much fun having to report no new snowfall in a morning, but I'm afraid I might have to get used to it over the coming days as there really doesn't seem to be any big refresh on the radar at the moment unfortunately. Tomorrow the forecast is from sun from early on.

So we need to make do with what we have for the moment. Keep in mind the good things too - it is remaining cold and there's no sign of rain either.

Niseko Avalanche Report

Niseko base 6am: -10C, no new snow in the last 12hrs. Moiwa 800m: -13C, trace new snow. Annupuri 1150m: -13C, wind N7m/s, no new snow. Hirafu 1000m: -11 , no new snow. Cape Benkei: NNE3m/s, Cape Kamui: ENE3m/s, wave 2.0m, pressure 1016hPa.

Niseko is between weather systems at the moment and weather is calm. Without new snowfall the snowpack is stable and the avalanche risk is generally low. Peak gates are expected to open this morning. Once you pass through the gates you are not in the ski areas anymore – no patrol. Please listen to the patrols advice before leaving. The mountain is tracked out, dont duck ropes looking for fresh lines. Niseko Rules strictly prohibit entering Haru no Taki, Mizuno no Sawa Special Control Area and Yu no Sawa. Your pass will be confiscated.

There are many other dangers off piste. Everybody can ride faster with newer technology but you still need to be careful hitting trees, crashing into cracks - it will just happen faster. If you want to explore some of the other peaks in the Niseko areas it is recommended to use a guide. Have a nice day.
