Niseko Snow Report 28 November 2017

The Powder Express is just filling for the next run.

*.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 6:00 today the temperature was -0.1°C.

Right now Niseko is drawing collective breath as the dumpage we have been under draws breath. There is a warm front moving in as we type this report and while the forecast is for more snow from Wednesday right now it’s pretty clear. We took a bit of a spin around Hirafu yesterday to give you a feel for how much snow has fallen so check out the images below.

All sorts of things going on with lifts so keep an eye on the Niseko United Lift Status.

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.
