This will be 360niseko’s last daily snow report for the 2019/20 season. If it snows we will report it and update our accumulative snowfall data. It has been a strange season and now with the corona virus situation we are all in uncharted territory. Niseko is basically deserted and ironically it is a lot like 2011 when there was a mass exodus after the 2011 earthquake and resulting Tsunami disaster. Thanks for following for the season and fingers crossed the global situation improves quickly….and we get a few more dumps here in Niseko this season 😉

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer
The 360niseko’s snow station for the 2019-20 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.
