It is colder this morning and while we have no new cm of snow, resorts are reporting some snow falling higher up it seems. Down here it's rain/sleet/snow kind of stuff at the moment, though we weren't really expecting that until later on today.

There's a bit of a wind this morning and top lifts at Grand Hirafu and Hanazono are on standby and waiting for those to hopefully ease off.

Niseko Avalanche Report:

Niseko base 6am: +3C, no snowfall, overcast. Moiwa 800m: no data. Annupuri peak 1308m: S14.1m/s, -3.9C. Coastal data: cape Benkei S15m/s, cape Kamui calm, 1012hPa. Annupuri 1000m snowpack 360cm. Hirafu 1000m: +1C, no snowfall.

Southerly wind as picked up with a Low traveling along the Pacific coast. New cracks and slides have formed due to high-temperature. Spring skiing can be appreciated once the slides mostly fall and stabilizes, but the conditions are still quite unstable and sketchy. Spring slides from the ground are likely to occur from around 1000m altitude. The slides sometime occur as the slope cracks and are very difficult to predict. It is highly recommended not to ride the valley bottoms natural halfpipes of the Backbowl, Osawa and Mikaeri sawa. Flat light today and obstacle are hard to visualize. Snow is pretty bad too. Beware of hitting trees. Peak gates will open in the morning, please listen to the ski patrol’s advice before stepping out. Freedom too ride out of bounds is respect in Niseko, but we are always concerned about all skiers’ and riders’ safety.
