It's a bright morning but mostly cloudy. Temps just under zero and a light wind at the moment. We might get some sunny conditions later on like we did yesterday.

Expecting colder conditions over the weekend and snow to be falling.

Tomorrow is a national holiday in Japan and so the start of a three day weekend, so there will probably be more locals around tomorrow than you would normally have on a weekday.

Niseko Avalanche Report

Niseko base 6am: -6C, no snowfall, calm morning. Moiwa 800m: n/a. Annupuri peak 1308m: n/a. Coastal data: cape Benkei S4m/s, cape Kamui: no wind, 0.6m waves, 1018hPa. Annupuri 1000m snowpack 340cm, Hirafu 1000m: -7C, calm.

Calm condition under a high-pressure system. The overall avalanche risk is low.

This information states the potential risks of direct-action avalanches (avalanche occurring during or immediately after a storm) that cause most hazards to skiers and snowboarders. Avalanches occur when the conditions allow and becomes an accident if a person is involved in. If the temperature rises, spring climax slides hazards will rise accordingly in south facing valleys. It also raises the possibilities of large-scale avalanches in the Backbowl, O-sawa and Higashi-One. Accidents can be avoided if being prudent. Better not overestimate skills and knowledge. Peak gates will open from the morning. Morning groomers are nicely packed, good carving conditions. Have a nice day.
