Not long after my report yesterday the temperature started to drop and the sleety drizzle of the morning turned into snow. It cleared up a bit in the afternoon but overnight some reasonable quality snow fell giving us around 5-10cm fresh since last report. Much cooler today so the snow should remain in good condition.
Currently we're having some snow showers but also plenty of sunny breaks in between. Overall a beautiful Spring day with a little bit of fresh to play in.
A little more snow can be expected today and tomorrow and at this stage Wednesday is starting to look good for a nice dump of snow.

Avalanche Information:
(Information as of this morning)

Niseko Avalanche Info No.82

Moiwa base 6am: -6℃, no snowfall.
Coastal data: NW9m/s at Benkei cape, N6m/s, 2.2m waves 1024hPa at Kamui cape.
Annupuri peak 6am: NW17.2m/s.
Strong NW breeze has persisted during the night and let some soft cornices, drifted snow slabs in leeward slopes.
The mountain has gone back to winter.
Some snowdrifts have developed in areas above 1000m, and thin surface slab slides are to be highly considered in Higashi-One steeps. Some slides of up to 40cm thickness are also likely to occur around cornices/knolls of Mikaeri/Moiwa and the Backbowl.
Avalanches occur when the conditions are right and doesn’t necessarily rely on that day’s snowfall amount. Better not cut the cornices or knolls.
Peak gates are scheduled to open at 10:00.
Outside the gate is not the ski resort anymore, have you let anyone know your skiing plan? It is strongly recommended not to venture out alone.
Strictly off-limits areas must not be entered at anytime. One track left under the rope would lead many others to follow it and end up in rising the chances of accidents to happen.
Enjoy your day.
