The sun has indeed mad an appearance and it looks like it will be the starring role today.

There's some white fluffy clouds hanging around the mountain but lots of blue sky this morning and totally clear views of Mt Yotei in the other direction. A very nice morning here and currently around 0 degrees. A moderate wind but lifts all seem to be scheduled to open as planned this morning.

Tomorrow will be a little warmer and there's a chance of rain which will hopefully turn into snow by the end of the day.

Avalanche Information:

Niseko base 6am: -3C, no new snow, calm. Moiwa, Annupuri Peak: no data. Coastal data: wind S3m/s, 0.9m waves, pressure 1020hPa. Annupuri peak predicted windspeed at noon: SW15m/s.

Calm weather due to high pressure system. Above 1000m, small amount of snow drift development on top 25 Mar layer from weak system yesterday. From snowfall data, general avalanche risk is lowering, however there is risk on steep open bowls that collect snow, like Kozan no Sawa main chute, of rider stimulated, fast running surface avalanche.

Peak gates are expected to open at 9.30am. Niseko Rules only exist to protect the freedom and minimum safety of out of bounds riding. Although the local community cares about your safety, the Ski Resorts responsibility and authority does not extend to out of bounds areas. Please understand and respect the rules.

Avoid getting caught in large scale avalanche, do not ride in the valley bottoms. Beware of cracks. Snow isn't too bad today.
