Niseko Snow Report, 25 December 2018

Merry Xmas from NIseko!

*4.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 7:15 today the temperature was -3°C. Merry Christmas! We have had a bit of a top up but expect lot’s more higher up the mountain – yesterday afternoon it was dumping in Hanazono. The wind shut down the upper lifts in Niseko Annupuri so well worth keeping an eye on lift operations and looking for wind blown powder stashes. The forecast is looking great with lots of snow in the forecast!

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.
