Niseko Snow Report, 17 January 2017

Super Fluff!

*5.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -4°C. The snow this morning is super light and for anyone lucky enough to be able to make it up higher on the mountain should be rewarded with incredible floaty powder turns. Most of the upper mountain was closed yesterday due to strong winds but this shouldn’t be the case today! We can expect patches of sunshine so….looks like it will be another day to remember!

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.
