In the afternoon yesterday the snow got heavier and this continued through night laying down another 20-30cm of very nice powder since last report. The wind wasn't overly strong so it's settled very lightly and I'm sure there'll be plenty of faceshots off-piste. Bottomless turns and fresh tracks can be found right around the resort. The peak gates are expected too open today but avalanche danger is still moderate so be very wary around cornices and convex slopes. Temperatures aren't too cold up high at -13 but the wind may pick up a bit later and windchills could get below -20 so make sure you have something to cover your face. Overall it's going to be another great powder day on the mountain. Similar conditions can be expected to continue right through the weekend.

Avalanche Information:

Niseko Avalanche Info No.59

Moiwa base 6am: -7℃, short but strong snowfall at night left 15cm of fresh snow at the base, 30cm at 1000m.
Coastal data: NNW11m/s at Benkei cape, N8m/s, 1.6m waves and 1016hPa at Kamui cape.
Predicted wind at the peak at noon: N15m/s.
According to all data evaluations, weather transition and observations, the general avalanche risk remains moderate this morning.
Peak gates are scheduled to open at 10:00 but will close depending on the future conditions.
The wind and snow is predicted to pick up later on today.
Respect the ski patrol’s decisions.
Most accidents occur during poor weather as storms deprive sight and restrict the range of activities.
Outside the gate is not the ski resort’s “course”.
The freedom of out of bounds riding or the Mizuno no sawa educational program is only realized on a fine line based on the existence of the Niseko Rules.
Disregarding the Rules will not only endanger people’s safety but will end up restricting Niseko’s freedom of out of bounds riding.
We strongly demand everybody to respect the Niseko Rules.
Be careful in steep slopes with bad visibility.
The snow is good.
