*12cm has fallen in the last 24 hours in Niseko. At 07:00 today the temperature was -6°C. Excellent snowfall this morning with fat flakes lazily free falling down. Yesterday evening the snowfall really picked up and it certainly feels like it has snowed a lot more than the 12 cm we are reporting on our snow station here. On the mountain especially higher up it should be a total reset! We will see a spike in the temperature tomorrow before the next strong cold front moves into the region on Sunday bringing with it heavy snowfall.

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.
