Niseko Snow Report, 24 February 2018

Wind Blown Powder?!?

*3.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 07:45 today the temperature was -3°C. We have just had a dusting overnight and it looks like the weather will be quite changeable alternating between patches of sunshine and snow flurries. The week ahead is looking great but will also be changeable with a series of high and low pressure systems passing through the region in quick succession. Skiing and boarding will be great on the resorts but fresh powder will be a bit harder to find 😉

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.
