Happy New Year!
December was a month to remember with a whopping 437cm of accumulative snowfall in Hirafu village.
Add to that November’s total of 125cm and today’s new year dump of 17cm which now brings us to a total of 579cm of accumulative snow fall. This morning Grand Hirafu reported a compacted snow depth of 130cm at the base of the mountain and 300cm at the mountain peak .
Food for thought… last season we recorded 5.1 meters of accumulative snowfall for December 2011. The first 9 days of January are looking good!!
We look forward to following the remainder of the 2012-13 season and providing a free impartial information source for people living locally or visiting the Niseko region.
Wishing you a safe, prosperous and happy 2013. Thanks for following 360niseko.com
