After that bumper report of snow yesterday, just a bit this morning.

It is a much calmer morning this morning and all of the mountain should be open. The sun is out and we have clear skies up there. Calmer conditions look set to continue.

Some very sobering news has been reported in the avalanche report this morning - see below. Let's take care out there.

Avalanche Information:

Niseko base 6am: -9C, no snowfall and calm morning. Moiwa peak: NW5m/s, -10C and light development of snowdrifts. Annupuri peak: N8.1m/s, -12.8C. Coastal data: NNE5m/s, 1.3m waves and 1014hPa.

The atmospheric pressure gradient is shelving and the weather is calm. No notable development of snowdrifts can be observed and the new slab formed on top of Jan 24-25 is stable. The avalanche risk is low. Gates 2 & 3 are scheduled to open at 10am.

There have been 2 fatal accidents yesterday. In both cases, the Niseko Rules has been ignored and disrespected. It is really sad to apprehend this reality. Both victims fell into a crack and lost their lives. Dangers about cracks have been repeatedly mentioned in this information, but ended up in vain. Disrespecting, ignoring or criticizing this Information or the Niseko Rules is not a problem as long as people take care of themselves and avoid thoughtless actions that could lead to serious accidents. It is a very sad morning. May their souls rest in peace.
