Another 10cm of snow overnight to freshen up the slopes for this morning. There was a little sun around earlier but currently it is mostly cloudy with some light snow showers. A bit more snow expected this afternoon and we should get a little more tomorrow as well. Beyond that it looks like the weather will become fine and warmer. So get up there and enjoy the good conditions as after tomorrow we may not see all that much more fresh snow this season. Although we can occassionaly get some reasonable falls in the early part of April.

Niseko Village:

Avalanche Information:

Peak gates are scheduled to open around 9:30am, please follow the ski patrol’s instructions. Another 10cm of fresh snow fell overnight and the wind remained relatively calm, stagnating around 5m/s westerly even above 1100m elevation. Annupuri peak 6am: -11℃ and SW2.5m/s wind. There are almost no new snowdrifts developments but a thin layer of fresh snow is blanketing most of the mountain. The snowpack until yesterday has sunken down and stabilizing. Surface slab avalanche hazard is relatively low, however it is wiser to stay alert and not to forget about risks especially in typical avalanche terrain. Of course avalanches don’t occur anywhere anytime, and it seems like the chances of getting caught in one is very slim, but dropping into potentially dangerous slopes without really thinking about what can happen, just sounds like quite a risky gamble. The only way to minimize the chances of getting caught in an avalanche is by being “overly” cautious. Better not ignore the risks involved in backcountry riding. Full-depth avalanches are also becoming a threat as the temperature rises. Those particular avalanches are extremely difficult to predict, please refer to the past occurrences records displayed at the gates and note the potentially dangerous slopes.
