Niseko Snow Report, 18 February 2012

Clear Skies

*12cm of fresh snow has fallen since yesterday morning and at 7:00am today the temperature was -18°C. We have clear skies this morning, but the last few days of quick accumulation have left the steeper sections of the mountain a bit dangerous – so be careful out there.

Unfortunately yesterday a snow clearing operation damaged our weather station – we were able to get it back up and running, but only after having to clear all of the accumulated snow from the snow-depth ruler. Hence today’s photo is out of sync with the actual snowfall data.

Zangi – A small walk up will get you to the start of this red ski run named after Hokkaido’s famous fried chicken!
