Niseko Snow Report, 1 January 2017

Happy New Year 2017!!

*0cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -2°C. Calm overcast conditions this morning. It looks like we may have to wait a few days before the first flakes of 2017 to float down on us here in Niseko. Sunshine is forecast later in the day and perhaps this morning a good opportunity to relax and slowly take in the new year.

* There will be no snow report tomorrow as we are hitting the road and the next snow report will be on the 3rd of January

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.
