Niseko Snow Report, 17 March 2018

4cm down here is equal to a lot more at higher elevations at this time of year!

*4cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 05:30 today the temperature was -6°C. Another decent top up over night and a sweet layer of powder on the mountain no doubt. Presently cloudy but we can expect the sun to pop throughout the day but importantly temperatures will remain cold. Yesterday’s conditions on the mountain were fun but patchy with wind blown icy sections and fresh powder zones all mixed up. This morning should be much better with continued snowfall at higher elevations yesterday and last night.

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.
