Niseko Snow Report, 9 April 2018

And then there were 2.

*0.5cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 06:45 today the temperature was 0°C. Another dusting overnight. The brilliant run of spring weather has continued and we have fresh snow and sunshine this morning. As of today Niseko United is down to 2 resorts – Grand Hirafu and Niseko Annupuri will remain open until the first week of May. The weather for the week ahead is not looking great at this stage so better get out there today and make the most of the sunshine if you are in the Niseko region.

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.
