Snowfall in Niseko 12_01_2018

Another  decent fall overnight and it’s not as cold and clear this morning but still looks pretty good on the snow front. Rumor is yesterday was day of the year and 360 tends to agree. Today will be very close if not better as long as you can find the places not savaged to ground level  by the powder hounds yesterday. See you out there.

Check the live cam feed if you would like to see what is cooking right now in Hirafu on the snow front.

360niseko Snow Station Readings Disclaimer

The 360niseko now has 2 snow stations for the 2017-18 season in Higashiyama at 200m and 300m *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 houses on the ground.
