Niseko Snow Report, 16 April 2018

"Let it melt"

*0cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 07:00 today the temperature was 4°C. Looks like we had some wet snow overnight but no accumulation on the 360niseko snow station. Thankfully the rain has stopped and it is an ok looking day out there this morning with cloudy conditions with patches of sunshine coming through. Amazingly there is a good chance for fresh tracks higher up on the mountain this morning! From tomorrow spring will return with a vengeance with the max temperature expected to be in double digits for the remainder of the week. Google tan – let’s go!

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.
