Welcome to the first 360niseko daily snow report for the 2015-16 season!
*1cm of fresh snow has fallen in the last 24hrs in Hirafu Village. At 7:00 today the temperature was 4°C.
First snowfall on Mt.Annupuri and Hirafu village
It is always a special time when the first snowfall coats the surrounding mountain peaks and eventually falls in Hirafu village. Yesterday’s cold snap produced some nice fresh accumulations on Mt.Yotei and by mid morning sleet and wet snow was falling on Mt.Annupuri. By mid afternoon the clouds parted revealing fresh snowfall below 1000 meters.
Early evening the snowfall had made it’s way down to village level with a thick sludgy 1cm coming down in quick succession.
The temperature was above freezing so by this morning not much of the snowfall remains below approximately 600 meters.
As is always the case in autumn the wether is very changeable and the snow will soon be gone with temperatures forecast to rise but none the less HATSUYUKI!
Congratulations to RML who took out the converted prize of dinner for 6 at Bistrot le Cochon for the most accurate guess in the “Niseko First Snow Contest”!
