We're finally back in the powder business with 35-40cm of fresh snow since last report. It started in the afternoon yesterday and continued throughout the night. Currently it's taken a little break with the skies clearing allowing some powder turns in sunshine. Doesn't get much better than that. There will be a few more snow showers today but it is expected to fine up. Plenty more snow expected to return tomorrow though.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 340
Bottom - 175

Niseko Village:
Top - 320
Bottom - 190

Annupuri:
Top - 245
Bottom - 200

Avalanche Information:

Annupuri peak 6am: -13 ℃, ESE 5m / s. No overnight snowfall and the wind has remained calm. There is not much change in the snow condition from yesterday and fresh lines are harder to find in the whole mountain. The slopes surface in high elevation eastern areas is rugged, scuffed by yesterday's northerly winds. Some soft patches remains in the tree-runs, however is in a tricky condition as chunks of hard snow / ice fallen from trees branches are lurking underneath the soft snow. Some south facing slopes are highly sun-affected, remain in controllable speed and beware of hitting trees. Snow-pit observation is important to evaluate that given slope's condition, however the first and foremost thing to remember is that avalanches are most likely to happen during and just after storms. Drastic weather changes creates irregularities and instabilities in the snow-pack, be aware of the future weather transitions. Peak gates are scheduled to open at 9:30.
