Niseko Snow Report, 20 March 2018

Wind blown powder stashes?

*0.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 06:30 today the temperature was -4°C. A cold snap overnight and we have fresh snowfall! The temperature looks set to stay low today before spring returns tomorrow. A good day to hunt for good snow and keep the “Powder Dream” alive. There will be some good wind blown powder stashes after yesterdays strong winds which have now abated….upper lifts…gullies etc etc. You get the drift? ( no pun intended).

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.
