Niseko Snow Report, 14 March 2018

The melt is ON!

*0cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 08:00 today the temperature was 4°C. Another warm overcast spring morning here. With rain expected the pick would be to get up there asap and hit the groomed runs. Let’s just hope the weather at least clears in the next few days and we can enjoy spring corn skiing and boarding. In the word’s of local guide Tracey Creedon.

“Spring snow: Poor man’s powder, slushy fun. Granular goodness. Like a soft serve.”

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2017-18 season is in Higashiyama at 200m *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.
