    I have been checking on Snow-Forecast.com and it doesn’t really seem to be very accurate. They have predicted single figure snow falls for this last week, when in fact the snow looks awesome! Even your forecast has suggested only light snow. I was getting worried bout our upcoming trip, but I guess I was worrying about nothing … ! Go Niseko!

    • Hi Tony. Thanks for the comments! Yes predicting the snowfall in Hokkaido is not an easy task! We have an archive of snow reports from the last 2 years http://360niseko.com/category/daily-snow-reports/ scroll down and search back to around the dates you are heading over and you can find out what the snow has been like over the last couple of years. Thanks for following.
