It's a lovely morning here in Niseko - clear blue skies, sun shining, light breeze for now (perhaps more wind later on). No new snow to report and it is a mild start to the day.

Now that the long weekend is done, things get quieter still here; a big contrast to the bustle of the peak season. The snow may not be as good now of course, but much less people is appealing for some.

No snow on the weekly forecast - just lots of sun and warmer conditions, and warmer as the week moves on.

Hello Spring!

---

Niseko base 6am: -3C, no snowfall, bluebird. Moiwa peak: no data. Annupuri 1000m: 370cm snowpack. Hirafu 1000m NW5m/s, -5C, no snowfall. Peak 1308m: NW14.6m/s, -7.2C. Coastal data: cape Benkei WNW9m/s, cape Kamui: SSW8m/s, 1.2m waves, 1015hPa.

Although in the clear zone of the high-pressure system, the wind remains strong in high altitude. The snow below 800m will loosen as the temperature rises and the snow conditions in the trees and courses will soften. Some re-crystallized powder could be found in north facing slopes, however heavily wind-affected slopes are icy. Beware of falling and slip-drops. Deep layer avalanche hazard will raise in Kozan no sawa (Backbowl) sidewalls, Osawa sidewalls (1000m) and Higashi-one cornice area (1000m). Better stay away from valley bottoms. Peak gates will be open from the morning. The area outside the gates is not managed by any resorts, always be prudent in the backcountry. The mountain is slowly shifting to Spring.
