*0cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 07:30 today the temperature was 1°C. We did get some snowfall overnight but it hasn’t accumulated down here. Higher up on the mountain it will be fun! A cold snap and it feels like winter is back. We can expect sunny patches of weather today before more snowfall this evening (dare to dream). There is quite a bit of wind so a face mask is advised. We actually have 3 days of cold temperatures and snow in the forecast so hopefully we will pass the 14m mark for accumulative snowfall. Stay tuned!!

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.
