Niseko Snow Report, 1 December 2016

*0cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was 4°C. Not the most exciting conditions out there this morning…we can expect warm conditions today but the snow is forecast to return this evening when a weak cold front hits the region. The groomed runs will still be fun on the freshly groomed “corduroy”! * Just after posting this report it started raining. In the grand scheme of things not such a bad thing for the seasons snow pack. It is a good day to chill out!

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko snow station is now in a new location for the 2016-17 between Hirafu and Higashiyama at 200m in altitude. There is 27m difference in altitude to last seasons position in lower Hirafu village 227m. *The Hirafu Gondola is at 305m. Please be aware that this new reading is NOT in Hirafu village but a few kilometers down the road. There is always a deviation how and where the snow falls – the area is famous for micro climates and mini weather patterns. Some days there may be 10cm in Annupuri and 25cm in Hanazono and vice versa – some days 30cm of fresh snowfall comes down everywhere!! Altitude plays a big part as well so please don’t take the 360niseko snow readings as being definitive – the readings are what is outside our house on the ground.
