Good morning from Niseko.

Well, yesterday was certainly a lot of fun. :)

This morning there is a lot of blue sky and some cloud. It is a fine Monday morning. And while it may well be somewhat milder today, we're going to be getting colder again beyond tomorrow and there is a chance of some more snow.

Hopefully wind won't be an issue.

Niseko is so much more quiet now than peak season. As you might well expect of course. Funny how it takes on a really different feel/atmosphere; to me anyway. A bit more... relaxed. And that will only get more so over the last month of the season.

Niseko Avalanche Report:

Mountain Base 6.00am: -2°, no new snow. Moiwa 800m: -3.4°, SW2.13m/s, no new snow. Annupuri 1100m: -5.6°, WSW5.6m/s, snow depth 260cm. Hirafu 1000m: -5.4°, SSW7.80m/s. Kutchan Weather Station: -1.0°, snow depth 100cm, ESE1.9m/s. Coastal data: Benkei Cape:SE2m/s. Kamui Cape: SSW18m/s, pressure 1007hPa, wave 1.7m.

Snowdrift development has stopped but strong winds are still blowing above 1100m and on the seas north of Cape Shakotan. Above 1000m the risk of cornices collapsing continues, also hard slabs bonded to SE facing steep slopes are breaking easily by rider stimulation, possibly triggering an avalanche. From observation, leeward snowdrifts below 1000m are starting to stabilise and avalanche risk will fall during the day. Peak gates are expected to be open, however please respect the patrols decisions.

Moiwa Gate 6 is closed due to the Quad lift operation being terminated. Many people visited Moiwa ski resort this winter and we are grateful we finished the season with no out of bounds accidents. Nagoya University and the Disaster Prevention Science Research Center will be carrying out tests in the Mikaeri area today. Today’s snow conditions are good, enjoy it.
