Good morning from Niseko. And what a fine morning it is as well. Calm. There's no new snow to report this morning in village and just a slight snowfall since yesterday on the mountain.

Actually not much to report really this morning. It's a bright but overcast kind of start to the day with the sun trying to break through. We could even end up with clear blue skies I reckon, though the forecast for the day is generally cloudy conditions. The summit of Mt Yotei is currently covered in cloud.

Light snow showers on and off over the next few days seems to be what we have in store. Right now it is -7 degrees here.

Hope you have a fun day.

Avalanche Information:

Niseko base 6am: -12C, no snowfall, calm morning. Moiwa 800m:-14C, light dusts and no development of snowdrifts. Annupuri peak: SW1.3m/s, -14.3C. Coastal data: SSE4m/s, calm ocean, 1018hPa.

No notable snowfall and development of snowdrifts in the past 12 hours. Avalanche risk is low according to all data and observations. Many tracks all over the mountain, but the snow is still in good quality. Peak gates are scheduled to open at 9:30am.

Crossing boundary ropes is prohibited and entering strictly off-limits areas is forbidden. The freedom and minimum safety of out of bounds riding in Niseko is barely protected by having everyone respect the Niseko Rules. Never enter Yunosawa and Harunotaki for any reasons.

Ignorantly following unknown tracks might lead you straying far away from the resort. Get a map at lift stations so you can spot where you are. Bear in mind that outside the ropes is outside the resort responsibilities, be conscious of the hazards, know your limits and go out at your own risk. Beware of hitting trees and falling into cracks. Cracks are the result of the slope releasing its own tension and will not necessarily trigger a slide, however can involve serous consequences when falling into them. Ride carefully. Many dangers are lurking in winter mountains. Have a nice day.
