Morning from the Hirafu area. The mild spell continues, and it's a cloudy and overcast morning here. Temperatures just under zero at the moment.

The wind is making itself known again this morning and at the start of the day top lifts at all of the resort areas have not been moving, along with the Niseko Gondola at Niseko Village.

Some snowfall on Sunday? Perhaps, though I wouldn't expect anything significant.

Niseko Avalanche Report

Niseko base 6am: -4C, no new snowfall. Moiwa 800m: n/a. Annupuri 1150m: N15m/s, -9C, light snowfall and development of snowfall, 340cm snowpack. Hirafu 1000m: strong northerly wind, -11C, no snowfall. Peak 1308m: N17.8m/s, -10.2C. Coastal data: cape Benkei NNE11m/s, cape Kamui E4m/s, 0.9m waves, 1004hPa.

A low pressure system is passing along the pacific coast, making northerly wind blow in the Niseko range. The mountain is frozen. Peak gates opening is undecided, please follow the ski patrol’s instructions. South facing slopes have melted and re-frozen repeatedly and the snow condition is bad. Beware of route finding, falls & slipdrops, falling into cracks and hitting trees. Do not duck ropes to seek fresh lines, always use the gates to access the out of bounds areas. The area outside the gates is quasi-national park areas; no controls, no patrols and no sweeps. Always be aware of the risks and stay prudent out there.
