Niseko Snow Report, 2 February 2017

Powder rush!

*16.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:00 today the temperature was -10°C. Another stellar day out there this morning! There is some wind in the forecast for today but presently at village level does not seem like an issue…let’s hope it stays that was. You can’t really made a bad decision today as to where to go – it’s all good! Very cold conditions with Kutchan expecting a top temperature of -8! It will be cold up there so don’t for get your face mask. Have fun!!

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.
