Yesterday remained very cool and apart from a few light snow showers it was quite sunny through much of the day. Today is similar and apart from the amazing clear views there's not much good can be said about the skiing unless you actually like cruising on groomers all day.
At this stage we can expect a little snow tonight and then more substantial falls Tuesday night into Wednesday and they are still forecasting a good dump on Thursday night. So by next weekend we may actually be skiing in some reasonable powder once more.

Avalanche Information:
(Information as of this morning)

Niseko Avalanche Info No.75

Moiwa base 6am: -7℃, overcast, no snowfall.
Coastal data: NNW2m/s at Benkei cape, SW2m/s, 0.6m waves and 1017hPa at Kamui cape.
Annupuri peak: WSW5.2m/s, -13℃.
The pressure gradient is gently shelving over the Sea of Japan. No snow-clouds are present and no snowdrift development can be observed in the mountain.
The warm up on the 26th made the surface snow melt as deep as 30cm at 600m, and the following cold made this layer to refreeze.
Dwarf pines are now visible in some 1200m areas and other bush have came out in 1100m Higashi-One area.
The snow condition is very bad.
Beware of slipdrops and crevasses.
“Potato fields” appearing due to grooming of frozen snow blocks can be found in some places within the courses. Be careful not to loose control by hitting those.
Peak gates are scheduled to open at 9:30.
Although the avalanche risk is low, there are many other dangers to be aware of in snow-mountains.
The visibility is bad, be careful not to loose your way.
Outside the gates is not the ski resort anymore.
The risks of full depth avalanche cannot be predicted. The only way to avoid those is to always remain away from the avalanche path.
