Well the system that moved through last night just skirted our region and we ended up with little snow in the end. Eastern Hokkaido though has received the full brunt of the storm with plenty of snow falling on that side of the island.
Temperatures remained very mild, hovering around freezing, at lower levels and the few cm's of snow that fell is quite wet. It will be better quality up high though.
As the low passes to our East we will see temperatures start to drop and much of next week will remain below freezing. Currently though it's not looking great for any big falls of snow. Most of the precipitation appears will stay to our South.

Avalanche Information:
(Information as of this morning)

Niseko Avalanche Info No.80

Moiwa base 6am: -1℃, 3cm of overnight snowfall.
Coastal data: SSE3m/s at Benkei cape, ENE5m/s, 0.8m waves 1014hPa at Kamui cape.
Humid snowfall due to the passing Low.
Annupuri peak at 6am: SSE 20.7m/s, -5℃ difficult to walk and bad visibility.
The surface is rock-hard crust in wind-exposed areas above 1100m, not suitable for skiing.
A wide 20cm deep surface slab slide is likely to happen in knolls or steep slopes between 600m to 1000m such as in the north-eastern slopes of the Higashi-One.
Peak gates are scheduled to open when the wind has calmed down.
Gate 4 and 6 are scheduled to open at 10:00.
Follow the ski patrol’s instructions.
Thin wet snow avalanches are to be highly considered in steep slopes around 800m today. They may be shallow but should never be underestimated, strong enough to drag you in.
Try not to go out of bounds alone.
Have you let your family/friends know where you’re going?
