We ended up with a (relatively ) warm day yesterday. Up to 3cm or so since yesterday, with the avalanche report below reporting 10cm. It's a calm morning and starting off with some clouds around but it has since cleared up and we now have lovely blue skies above us. Some white clouds lingering here and there but for the most part it's clear blue skies.

It's warm again today. With these warmer conditions the snow was somewhat firmer out there this morning than what we have been enjoying of late and as the days goes on we might even experience some slushy kind of conditions. Still fairly decent though by non-Niseko standards, and the groomed runs were fun early on.

It looks unlikely we'll get snow over the next few days, other than perhaps the occasional snow shower. Look to later in the week for the next potential heavy snowfalls and a drop in temperature.

Mountain all open. Enjoy!

Niseko base 6am: -6C, 10cm of crystal snow and calm morning. Moiwa 800m: NW10m/s, -8C. Annupuri peak: NNW12.2m/s, -12C. Coastal data: NNW7m/s, 1.2m waves and 1027hPa.

According to all data evaluation, observations and snowfall transition, the general avalanche risk is low. The slopes under treeline has been relatively reset thanks to the overnight moderate snow & wind. Gates 2 & 3 are scheduled to open at 9:30am. Ask the ski patrol’s advise before stepping out the gates and be equipped with the right gears.

Do not seek fresh tracks in the strictly off limits areas. Entering those off-limits areas is strictly restricted by the Niseko Rules. The safety and freedom to ski/ride the out of bounds area can only be kept by having everyone respecting the Rules. There will be no exception, no matter how experienced or no matter where you're from. We strongly demand to each and every skier/rider to understand the importance of the Niseko Rules. Have a good day.
